Another Arrest In Monroe County Drive-By Death
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — State police in Monroe County made another arrest for a deadly drive-by shooting.
Troopers say Kaylynn Bunnell of Stroudsburg faces homicide charges for a shooting earlier this month.
It happened at a mobile home park near Stroudsburg earlier this month.
Darcey Kravchenko, 39, was killed in the drive-by.
Kaylynn Bunnell surrendered to state police and was taken to the district magistrate’s office in Snydersville for her alleged role in the shooting death of Darcey Kravchenko.
“It’s kind of shocking that someone in this neighborhood would be involved in something like that,” said Margaret Foti.
Foti lives across the street from where court papers say Kaylynn Bunnell lives in Stroudsburg.
“Frankly, the neighbors across the street seem very nice. We wave to the mom; she’s very sweet to my son who has autism.”
State police say Bunnell and four other people targeted a home in a drive-by shooting earlier this month.
Troopers say Bunnell was the driver. They say she claimed she had been robbed during a drug deal.
Troopers say she then reached out to some friends and went to the mobile home on Old Timber Road to get her money back. When Bunnell didn’t get her money, she got back into her car.
Bunnell explained to the state police she was told to drive slowly on the road. When she did, she said the two accused shooters rolled down the car window and shot at this house five times. Then after that, she was told to drive off.
The bullet holes are still visible at the home, spray-painted in yellow.
One of the shots hit and killed an unintended target: Darcey Kravchenko.
Kaylynn Bunnell is now charged with criminal homicide
When asked about the shooting Bunnell said nothing.
Bunnell’s attorney says his client is a new mother and says that may have played a role.
“She’s a young mother. She has a 6-month old son. What goes along with that often are depression and some other issues,” said defense attorney Brandon Reish.
“Are you alleging that quite possibly could have been related as to why she got involved with this?”
“There are going to be mitigating circumstances down the road that deal with her issues as a young mother,” Reish said.
Kaylynn Bunnell is in the Monroe County Prison along with three other suspects in the shooting that killed Darcey Kravchenko.
State police are still looking for Brandon Wilson who they say was involved in that deadly shooting in Monroe County.
