Criminal Division | Department of Justice | Department of Justice Press Releases | Date Posted: Friday, April 5, 2019



A 53-year-old Wilmington man pleaded guilty to the 2018 stabbing death of his girlfriend. In January 2018, Kevin Dyton repeatedly stabbed and slit the throat of 58-year-old Annette Henry in the apartment the two shared on the 1600 block of West Fourth Street. Dyton fled from the apartment after the stabbing, and was arrested after police located him by following a trail of blood to a vacant home on the 200 block of North Dupont Street. Dyton pleaded guilty to Murder Second Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, and faces sentencing by a Superior Court judge in July. Deputy Attorneys General John Downs and Nichole Warner secured the plea. The DOJ prosecution team included paralegal Jaime Prater and social worker Stacey Murphy. Detective Mackenzie Kirlin of the Wilmington Police Department was the chief investigating officer.
