staff - January 30, 2016 6:24 am

A federal judge has entered a preliminary order of forfeiture against a husband and wife accused of laundering drug money for a Mexican cartel at a small southwest Kansas bank.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A 29-year-old man has been convicted of fatally shooting his girlfriend in the parking lot of a home improvement store in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Wyandotte County prosecutor’s office announced Friday that George Lingenfelser of Bonner Springs was found guilty of second degree murder in the December 2014 killing of 29-year-old Janet Billings.

Lingenfelser was originally charged with first-degree murder for shooting Billings in the parking lot of a Lowe’s Home Improvement store. Other customers were present at the time of the shooting.

Sentencing is set for March 3rd.
