The 22-year-old man who killed his father in their Newtown Township home earlier this year pleaded guilty on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, and will spend the next 30 to 60 years in state prison.
Jordan Matthew Kurman, of Newtown Township, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, and criminal mischief for the murder of his father Gregory A. Kurman on April 29, 2022.
At Thursday’s hearing, Kurman’s younger brother tearfully detailed the devastation the murder caused their family. “The world feels cold and empty without him,” he said.
Reading victim impact statements written by himself and his mother, the younger Kurman described their father as a caring and compassionate man who would do anything to protect their family, which included trying for years to help his son with his mental health issues.
