Kansas teen sentenced in shooting preceding officer’s death

Associated Press - November 20, 2016 11:16 am

A Kansas couple was sentenced to three years of probation for laundering millions of dollars in suspected drug money through their small town bank.

A Kansas City, Kansas, teenager faces nearly two years in prison for a July shooting that a police captain was investigating when he was fatally shot.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://j.mp/2g5FMmv) that 18-year-old Daqon Sipple was sentenced Friday to one year and nine months in prison for the July drive-by shooting, to which he pleaded guilty in September.

Police Capt. Robert D. Melton was helping other officers investigate that shooting, in which no one was injured, when he tried to stop a possible suspect and was fatally shot.

Jamaal Lewis, 20, is charged with capital murder in Melton’s death. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March in Wyandotte County District Court.
