WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – A Hutchinson man faces a minimum of nine years in prison after being convicted of killing a Wichita woman.
Forty-eight-year-old Ronald Harner was convicted Monday in the June 2012 death of Jolie Crosby in her east Wichita home. Sentencing is scheduled for July 31.
Prosecutors argued that Harner either intentionally shot Crosby or recklessly handled a revolver while the two were drinking at her home.
In statements to police, Harner said the gun discharged accidentally while he was unloading it.
