Doubt Cast on Man’s Life Sentence

KSAL StaffAugust 8, 2016

A Kansas man who has spent 22 years in prison for a double homicide that witnesses swear he didn’t do hopes more than 40 affidavits supporting his innocence will help set him free.

Lamonte McIntyre was 17 in 1994 when he was accused of fatally shooting two men who were sitting in a car in a drug-infested Kansas City, Kansas, neighborhood. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

A retired Kansas City police captain who reviewed McIntyre’s case calls the murder investigation “grossly deficient.” A former drug dealer signed an affidavit swearing a different person was paid to kill the men.

McIntyre’s attorney, Cheryl Pilate, says the case has so many flaws no reasonable juror would have convicted her client if all evidence had been presented.
