INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) – A 42-year-old Kansas City has been convicted of stabbing his father to death.
A Jackson County jury convicted Curtis Lee on Thursday of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Lee was arrested in April 2018.
Prosecutors say Independence officers went to a home and found two brothers, Charles and Clyde Burtin, dead from stab wounds.
Lee told police that his father stabbed his uncle during an argument. Lee said he pulled the knife out of his uncle and joined his father in a bedroom.
Prosecutors say when the father told his son “It’s going to be you or me,” Lee stabbed him.
