Kansas man found guilty in Junction City slaying

KSAL StaffMarch 6, 2014

A northeast Kansas man has been found guilty of killing a woman to keep her from providing information to federal law enforcement officers about his involvement in drug trafficking.

The U.S. attorney’s office says a federal jury on Thursday convicted 32-year-old Marcus D. Roberson of Junction City of murder, conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and conspiracy to distribute powder cocaine.

Prosecutors say Roberson lured 25-year-old Crystal Fisher to a location near an alley in Junction City and shot her four times at close range. Her body was found in her vehicle and the murder weapon was found in a pond behind a Junction City Walmart.

Roberson faces up to life in prison on the murder and drug counts and a $10 million fine on each of the drug counts.
