Sunday, March 27, 2011
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — The prosecution is expected to wrap up its case Monday against a Kansas City man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, her boyfriend and two young nephews two years ago.
The Kansas City Star reported that jurors heard evidence Friday that a cellphone belonging to Gevante Anderson’s father was used near the crime scene around the time of the killings.
The 26-year-old Anderson is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting and stabbing deaths of 21-year-old Precious Triplett, 33-year-old Andre Jones, 10-year-old Amir Clemons and 7-year-old Gerard Clemons.
The boys were visiting their aunt at her Raytown apartment for spring break in March 2009 when the killings occurred. The toddler son of Anderson and Triplett was found walking among the bodies when the father of Triplett’s nephews came to the home.
