FORT SCOTT – (September 2, 2016) – A Bourbon County man was sentenced today to life in prison without the possibility of parole for at least 25 years for the death of an infant, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Anthony Michael Anderson, 22, was found guilty in May by a Bourbon County jury of one count of first-degree murder and one count of abuse of a child. District Court Judge Mark A. Ward today sentenced Anderson to life in the Kansas Department of Corrections without eligibility for parole for 25 years. The convictions stemmed from a crime that occurred in April 2015.
The case was investigated by the Fort Scott Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Adam Zentner of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
