Wichita man convicted of trying to kill wife and two sons

WICHITA, Kan. –  A Wichita man accused of shooting his wife and two sons in west Wichita in 2014 has been convicted of three counts of attempted first degree murder.

In a news release, Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said 39-year-old Pettix McMillan was convicted by a jury on Thursday after a four-day trial.

Prosecutors argued the shootings of McMillan’s wife and two sons, ages 5 and 13, were intentional and premeditated.

McMillan shot his wife during an argument in the garage of their home in the 300 block of N. Parkdale on March 24, 2014. After shooting his wife in the arm and neck, McMillan entered the house and shot the two boys in the head. All three victims survived.

McMillan was arrested after the shooting when two police officers spotted him walking in the parking lot of a nearby shopping center.

Judge Eric Yost has not yet set a date for McMillan’s sentencing.
