Woman Sentenced In Manhattan Murder

KSAL StaffJune 17, 2014

A northeast Kansas woman has been sentenced to 20 months behind bars for her role in last year’s killing of a 68-year-old Manhattan man she described as a longtime friend.

49-year-old Christina Love will also spend 18 months on probation under the sentence she received in Riley County District Court.

Love, her son and a third man were charged in the fatal shooting and stabbing of John Burroughs in September 2013. Love pleaded no contest to four charges including obstruction of justice.

In court Monday, Love apologized to the victim’s family and said she would not have gone to his home had she known what was going to happen.

Love’s 33-year-old son, James McKenith, pleaded guilty earlier to murder and will serve at least 20 years.
