Jan. 23, 2019
Another Kansas City man has been sentenced to prison in connection to the fatal shooting in May 2015 in south Kansas City of 3-year-old Amorian Hale, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
SirTerrry L. Stevenson, dob: 11/23/1992, was sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison on convictions of Murder 2nd Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and two counts of Armed Criminal Action. Earlier in the hearing today, Stevenson pleaded guilty to those four felony counts.
Family members of the 3-year-old homicide victim, Amorian Hale, today described for a Jackson County judge the great impact of losing their son and grandson. Family members said they are still trying to recover emotionally for something that should have never happened.
In December 2018, a Jackson County Judge sentenced Dominique Marchbanks today to 165 years plus a life sentence in the Missouri Department of Corrections for his role in the 2015 murder of 3-year-old Amorian Hale.
According to court records, Dominque Marchbanks was a passenger in Stevenson’s car on May 31, 2015. Witness statements indicate Marchbanks leaned out of the vehicle and fired a high-powered assault rifle into 6701 Walrond, before fleeing the scene. When questioned regarding the incident, Marchbanks denied involvement.
On Wednesday, Stevenson told the child's family members he was sorry about Amorian's death. "It is true," he said. "I'm sorry for the loss of the little boy's life...It shouldn't have happened."
