KANSAS CITY, Missouri — A Kansas City man has been convicted of killing a man who was asleep in his vehicle in Independence.
Twenty-year-old Chad D. Terry Jr. was convicted late Wednesday of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the October 2013 shooting death of 33-year-old Erik S. Schwartz of Raytown.
The Independence Examiner reports ( http://bit.ly/1yGnicp ) witnesses told police four people were looking for cars to steal from when they came across Schwartz sleeping in his vehicle in Independence. The thieves reportedly took only his cigarettes.
A second defendant, Charles T. Carr, earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and armed criminal action and is awaiting sentencing.
