Man Found Guilty in Murder of Pregnant Teen, Chelsea Brooks

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A jury says Ted Burnett is guilty of capital murder in the slaying of a 14-year-old pregnant teenager.

The verdict came Friday morning in the 2006 death of Chelsea Brooks, who was nine months pregnant when the father of the baby allegedly hired Burnett to have her killed.

Jurors heard testimony during the trial from Everett Gentry who testified Elgin Ray Robinson Jr. planned to kill the teen because she carried his child and he feared her parents would charge him with rape.
