DE SOTO, Kansas (AP) – A De Soto man has pleaded guilty in the death of a 21-year-old Prairie Village man.
Thirty-two-year-old Dustin Adam Maynard pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree murder in the killing of Jordan MacDonald. Prosecutors say MacDonald was stabbed and strangled. Authorities say the victim’s body was found partially burned in a grassy area near Maynard’s apartment on Oct. 30, 2013.
Authorities say the two men had been at a De Soto bar together the night before and that the victim had given Maynard a ride home.
Maynard is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 11.
