Man Convicted In Football Player’s Death

KSAL StaffFebruary 14, 2014

A Wichita man will face a minimum sentence of life without parole for 25 years for killing a former Wichita high school football star.

Twenty-one-year-old Kristofer JaQuinton Wright was convicted Thursday of premeditated first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Jordan Turner.

The former star at Wichita South High School was shot to death in a field last March. Prosecutors say Turner was killed because he cheated a woman out of $300 in a marijuana deal.

Three other people were charged in Turner’s death.

Wright’s lawyer argued that the shooting was intentional but was not premeditated.
