Ohio college student convicted of murdering mother with frying pan, knife

September 27, 2023

An Ohio college student who hid her expulsion from her parents for months was convicted last week of murdering her mother when she was finally confronted about it.

Sydney Powell, 23, of Akron bludgeoned her mother with a frying pan and then stabbed her 30 times with a knife in their home in March 2020 when she was confronted about the expulsion.

Powell's lawyers said she was suffering from schizophrenia when she committed the murder and tried to plead insanity, but prosecutors were able to show that she knew what she was doing at the time of the murder.

Powell's parents discovered her expulsion when her father went onto the portal for Mount Union University and could not access her information to pay tuition.

She was expelled in 2019 after failing three of her four classes.

"We are disappointed with the jury's verdict. We felt that the science overwhelmingly proved insanity, and we will file an appeal," Sydney's attorney, Donald Malarcik, told Fox News Digital.
