Kansas City man sentenced to life for grandmother's death
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Missouri judge has sentenced a 19-year-old Kansas City man to life in prison for stabbing his grandmother to death a day after she celebrated her 70th birthday.
Corey Barrett was convicted in May in Jackson County Circuit Court of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and two counts of armed criminal action. Prosecutors say he killed Marise Barrett in March 2013. A deputy Jackson County medical examiner testified during the bench trial that the victim was stabbed 32 times.
The prosecutor's office said Tuesday that Barrett was sentenced to life for second-degree murder and he also got another life sentence for armed criminal action.
