Wichita man sentenced for meth injection death

KSAL StaffMay 3, 2014

A 38-year-old Wichita man won’t face the hard 50 prison sentence after the jury in his trial couldn’t agree on giving him the heftier sentence.

Jason A. Jones was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping in the death of 34-year-old Shawn Lindsey, who was injected with a lethal dose of methamphetamine in January 2013.

Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Dan Dillon says jurors charged with deciding whether Jones should serve at least 50 years before being paroled could not reach consensus.

The Wichita Eagle reports Jones will face life in prison on the murder charge and more than 12 years in prison for kidnapping when he’s sentenced June 20.

In Kansas, standard first-degree murder convictions carry a life prison sentence without parole eligibility for 25 years.
