Last cow killer convicted in Leavenworth Co
05/18/2018

(KAIR)--An Overland Park man is found guilty for his role in shooting and killing cows in Leavenworth County.

According to a news release issued by Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, 20-year-old Christopher Wright pleaded no contest Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court to charges of criminal damage to property and animal cruelty.

Sentencing is set for June.

According to Thompson, Wright was one of four charged in connection with the killing of several heads of cattle on August 11, 2016.

The cows were discovered several days after the shootings, which caused $16,000 in losses.

The animals were located on two separate rural Leavenworth County properties, and had been shot, in the words of the accused, with no justification.

Wright is the last of the four to be found guilty.

The others include 20-year-old Manhattan resident Marcel Timmons, and two others who are identified in court documents only by initials, due to their ages.

One is from Leavenworth and the other is from Olathe.

All three were sentenced to probation and are required to pay restitution.
