Kansas City man charged in death of boy, 3

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man has been charged in the death of a 3-year-old boy who was killed when shots were fired into his family’s home.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office said Thursday that 22-year-old SirTerry L. Stevenson is charged with first-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action in the May 31 death of Amorian Hale.

Prosecutors say the shooting was in retaliation for the January shooting death of another man.

Prosecutors filed the charges against Stevenson under seal last month and made the charges public Thursday.

Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Stevenson, who is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.
