Son of Rodman and Helen Yarrington Sr.

Trooper Yarrington and his partner Trooper Ronald L. Carey were shot and killed in Pennsylvania by the female accomplice of a suspect they were struggling with.

Both troopers were investigating an armed robbery when they noticed a suspicious vehicle at a nearby hotel over the state line. When they began to investigate the vehicle they became engaged in a struggle with the male suspect. During the struggle the female accomplice shot both troopers.

The two suspects fled and the male suspect was later shot and killed by Maryland State Troopers. The female suspect was returned to Pennsylvania where she was sentenced to death. Her sentence was later commuted by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to life in prison.
