Kansas City man charged in deadly shooting
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A 22-year-old Kansas City man is charged with shooting an acquaintance and dumping the body on a street.
The Kansas City Star reports that Kimani I. Sterling is charged in Jackson County Circuit Court with second-degree murder in the Nov. 15 death of 23-year-old Ja'Que Dawkins. Sterling also was charged this week with armed criminal action and evidence tampering. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
Court records say Sterling shot Dawkins two to four times after leaving a nightclub with him and two other people in a rental car. Sterling also is accused of pulling Dawkins out of the back seat and ordering someone else to burn the car to destroy the evidence.
A 29-year-old man is charged in the car fire.
