Mo. Man Convicted in Quadruple Homicide
INDEPENDENCE (AP) - A jury has convicted a Kansas City man of first-degree murder and other charges in the killings of four people at a suburban apartment in March of 2009. The victims included his former girlfriend and her two young nephews.
The jury in Jackson County Circuit Court deliberated less than 90 minutes Monday before returning the verdicts against 26-year-old Gevante Anderson, who did not testify in the trial.
Anderson was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and other crimes in the deaths of 21-year-old Precious Triplett; her boyfriend, 33-year-old Andre Jones Sr.; and Triplett's nephews, 10-year-old Amir Clemons and 7-year-old Gerard Clemons Jr.
The 16-month-old son of Anderson and Triplett was found alone in Triplett's Raytown apartment walking among the bodies when Gerard Clemons Sr. arrived at the home.
