4 life sentences in fatal shooting that injured 10-year-oldPosted on 4 October 2017 at 5:17pm
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 30-year-old man was sentenced to four life sentences without parole for a shooting that killed a Kansas City man and paralyzed a 10-year-old boy.
Jackson County authorities say Dontae Jefferson was sentenced Wednesday for first-degree murder and other charges in the 2014 shooting at a gas station.
The shooting killed Ka'Vyea Curry and struck his son, Ka'Vyea Tyson-Curry, in the spine. An unrelated 5-year-old in the car wasn't harmed. The Kansas City Star reports a video shows Curry, his son and the other boy buying candy and juice before returning to the car.
Prosecutors say Jefferson shot Curry as he got into his car.
In September, Jefferson was charged with rape, burglary and two counts of sexual abuse in an August attack inside the Jackson County Detention Center.
