Man Pleads Guilty to Knife Attack at Kansas Shelter

staff - January 10, 2016 5:46 am

A 21-year-old man has pleaded no contest to a murder charge in the 2014 death of a Pittsburg State student.

A Kansas City, Missouri, man has admitted in a Kansas court that he tried to kill a homeless shelter employee by slashing his throat.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported that 22-year-old Christopher McCay pleaded guilty in Douglas County to attempted first-degree murder.

He admitted that in March 2014 he used a steak knife from the Lawrence Community Shelter’s kitchen and stabbed 46-year-old Robert Shaner.

McCay had been a guest at the site.

He faces between a dozen and 54 years in prison, depending on the findings of his pre-sentence investigation.

McCay is due to appear next in court on February 12th.
