'Lookout' in pregnant KC woman's death sentenced

April 10th, 2011 in News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City man could be free after serving 120 days for his role as a lookout in the killing of a woman who was nine months pregnant.

Twenty-six-year-old Lionel R. Henderson was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison, but he could be released after serving "shock time."

The Kansas City Star reported that prosecutors agreed to the deal to get Henderson to testify against co-defendant Calvin A. Boswell of Grandview. A jury found Boswell guilty last month of charges including two counts of murder. Boswell is set to be sentenced May 27.

Twenty-five-year-old Ashley Thomas had been sitting in a car with her boyfriend and another man in November 2009 when shots were fired into the vehicle. The two men also were hit, but they survived.
