Two Kansas City Men Sentenced to Life for Kidnapping, Murder
Two Kansas City men were sentenced to multiple life prison terms for the murder of another man.
Twenty-seven-year-old Raynal King and 23-year-old Howard Ross III were sentenced Wednesday for the September 2016 carjacking, kidnapping and death of Jaime Patton.
Federal prosecutors say Patton was returning home from visiting a hospital when King and Ross kidnapped him and stole his 2014 Jeep Patriot. They drove him to ATM machines and tried to force him to provide his PIN number for his debit card.
When Patton wasn't able to provide the PIN number, he was shot in the leg. Eventually, Patton jumped out of the Jeep and was shot several times and was left to die.
Prosecutors say King planned to sell the Jeep to get money to make payments on a vehicle he recently purchased.
