Man receives consecutive life sentences for killing a 17-year-old in Olathe

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) – An Overland Park man was convicted of killing a 17-year-old in Olathe, Kansas in March of 2019.

According to the Johnson County District Attorney, 22-year-old Matthew Lee Bibee Jr. received consecutive life sentences for first-degree murder and attempted capital murder. He will be eligible for parole after 50 years.

The charges he was convicted of stemmed from “a series of incidents” that occurred on March 31, 2019, according to the county district attorney, that led to the death of 17-year-old Rowan Padgett.

He was also convicted of the following additional charges, but these sentences were to run concurrently. So, technically they won’t change the amount of time he spends behind bars.

  • Attempted first-degree murder – 176 months (14.67 years)
  • Aggravated robbery – 32 months (2.67 years)
  • Battery on a law enforcement officer – 12 months
  • Battery – 6 months
  • Attempted aggravated robbery – 32 months (2.67 years)
  • Interference with law enforcement agencies – 6 months

Bibee was indicted in April of 2019 and a jury found him guilty in October of 2022.

According to previous KCTV5 coverage, the shooting that led to the death of 17-year-old Padgett occurred shortly before 5:00 p.m. in the 12300 block of S. Mullen on March 31, 2019.

Officers went to the scene after receiving a phone call about a disturbance.

When they arrived, they found a teenager who had been shot and was unresponsive. Officers performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but he died instantly. He was later identified as Padgett. The Olathe School District said he was a senior at Olathe East High School.

Bibee was injured in a firefight with officers who were responding to an attempted armed robbery that occurred later. Shots were fired. No one else was injured in that crash.

Bibee was treated in a hospital before being taken to prison. He was 18 at the time.
