Release Date: Sep 05, 2018

MOUND CITY – (September 5, 2018) – A Pittsburg man was sentenced today to life in prison after pleading no contest to two counts of first-degree premeditated murder for the 2016 deaths of two family members, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

David Patrick McNabb, 33, was sentenced to life in the Kansas Department of Corrections without the possibility of parole for 100 years by District Judge Mark Ward. McNabb pleaded no contest in April to the two counts of first-degree premeditated murder as well as one count of felony theft and one count of interference with law enforcement. The charges stemmed from the November 2016 deaths of McNabb’s uncle, Kenneth McNabb, and grandmother, Betty McNabb.

The case was investigated by the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, Crawford County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorneys General Jessica Domme and Jason Oxford of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
