Kansas Supreme Court affirms convictions in 2015 shooting

By KNSS Radio

The Kansas Supreme Court affirmed  convictions for first-degree murder and battery stemming from a 2015 shooting at the Roxy bar in Overland Park. 

The court ruled Friday that Dale Willis’ claims of jury instruction errors were barred because he had requested and agreed to those jury instructions. 

The state’s highest court also said none of the statements made by the state during the trial constituted prosecutorial error and the court properly admitted testimony and evidence. The case stems from dispute that erupted on Sept. 16, 2015 that ended with Jurl Carter being fatally shot multiple times in his car.
