Guilty verdict in area murder trial
11/15/2019

(KNZA)--A St. Joseph. Missouri man has been found guilty of the shooting death of a former Troy man in August 2018, and the wounding of another man.

KQ2-TV reports a Buchanan County jury found Jessie Lee Nelson guilty Thursday of first-degree murder, first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action.

The trial began Tuesday.

Nelson was convicted of killing 29-year-old Mack Jenkins and seriously wounding 23-year-old Deon Hernandez on August 6, 2018.

Witnesses told police they saw Nelson allegedly fire shots into a vehicle containing the two men after it crashed just north of downtown St. Joseph, and then drive away.

Nelson is scheduled to be sentenced January 23.
