Man convicted of shooting man accused of affair with wife
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City man accused of killing another man he thought was having an affair with his wife has been found guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
The Kansas City Star reported 37-year-old Christopher S. Deboe was convicted Tuesday for the killing of 45-year-old Sherill Collins on Sept. 5.
According to court records, police responded to a call about a shooting at a residence and found Deboe on the front porch. Records said Deboe told officers the victim was inside the home. Authorities found Collins dead on a couch with several gunshot wounds.
Police say Deboe told them he had taken a gun away from Collins and then shot him. Court records also say Deboe informed authorities that when he was released from prison, he heard the victim was in a relationship with his wife.
