Man Ordered to Stand Trial in Kansas Shooting Death

staff - March 27, 2016 6:11 am

A southern Kansas man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he sexually attacked a mother of four before fatally setting her on fire.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas City, Kansas, man has been ordered to stand trial in connection with a shooting death during a robbery attempt last year.

The Kansas City Star reports that a Johnson County judge ordered the trial after a preliminary hearing for 19-year-old Marquise Stokes. Stokes is charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated robbery.

Authorities allege Stokes shot and killed 18-year-old Velik Henderson inside the victim’s Overland Park home last June. Nineteen-year-old Trevon Anderson also was fatally shot during the incident, though Stokes is only charged with Henderson’s death. Stokes’ next court appearance is April 29.
