The Kansas City Star is reporting that Wyandotte County jurors convicted Fredrick Douglas on Tuesday of attempted capital murder,
aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated
robbery. The 68-year-old Kansas City man was acquitted on an
aggravated battery charge.
Defense attorney Debera Erickson conceded that Douglas was at the scene of the Oct. 1, 2006, shooting of Kansas City Det. Susan Brown. But Erickson argued that there was no evidence that Douglas and co-defendant Nolden Garner went to the speedway with the intent to kill Brown.
Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 6.
Garner goes on trial in January.
