McPherson Man Gets Life Sentence

KSAL Staff - July 7, 2015 6:57 am

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

A McPherson man was sentenced Monday to life in prison without the possibility for parole for at least 25 years for felony murder.

According to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, 32-year-old Clinton Bascue was sentenced in McPherson County District Court by Judge Richard B. Walker. Bascue pleaded no contest to first-degree felony murder in April. He was charged with the crime in connection with the November 2014 death of James Avery Croft.

A second defendant, Kamra Kay Farrell, was charged in April with first-degree felony murder in connection with this crime. Her next court appearance is scheduled for July 24 in McPherson County District Court.
