Osborne to stand trial for first-degree murder

A Joplin man will stand trial for the January murder of another Joplin man.

33-year-old Michael Osborne made an appearance in court Thursday for the first-degree murder of 27-year-old Shawn Rockers. He’s also facing an armed criminal action charge.

Rockers died of a single stab wound to the chest on the night of January 11th near 3rd and Connor Avenue.

You’ll remember that Osborne fled the area and was arrested in the state of Washington on January 30th before being extradited back to Jasper County.

He’ll be back in court April 29th.
