Ex-Soldier Convicted of Killing Kansas Guard Member

KSAL StaffAugust 22, 2013

A former Fort Riley soldier has been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of a Kansas National Guard member outside a Manhattan motorcycle club.

KAYS-AM reports a jury in Riley County District Court deliberated less than an hour Thursday before returning the verdict against 27-year-old Daniel Parker, of Junction City.

Parker was accused of opening fire on the “Assassin Street Rydaz” clubhouse as the victim, 21-year-old Frederick Beverly, manned the gate for a party early on New Year’s Day, 2012. Prosecutors said Parker had argued earlier with a club member.

Parker testified Thursday that he didn’t know Beverly and didn’t notice anyone outside the building.

Jurors also heard Thursday from Parker’s mother, who said her son had been “very withdrawn” after his second deployment to Iraq.
