Fairbanks pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and a gun charge in April 2021.
Fairbanks had claimed self-defense, telling authorities he had gone to Condoluci’s house to warn him to stay away from children, the World-Herald reports, and said Condoluci charged at him. Condoluci was shot three times in the front of his torso, three times in his back, and once in his temple.
Fairbanks also argued that he confronted Condoluci because he saw a play set in the backyard, KMTV-TV reports. Joseph Condoluci, Mattieo Condoluci's adult son, told the court he had set up the play set for his own child.
