KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Missouri man was sentenced to five years of probation for the beating death of a man in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
Joshua Bradley of Independence was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the 2013 attack on 30-year-old Kyle Van Winkle of Smithville. Van Winkle was attacked after he was found asleep or passed out in a vehicle that wasn’t his during a Kansas City Chiefs game. Prosecutors say the Jeep he was in was parked near a similar vehicle that Van Winkle had taken to the game. The Kansas City Star reports the plea came as Bradley’s trial was scheduled to start. A seven-year prison sentence was suspended before Bradley was placed on probation.
