A Jackson County judge on Thursday sentenced a 43-year-old Kansas City man to 22 years in prison for the fatal shooting of Brooklyn Lindsey, a transgender woman who was found shot on June 25, 2019, in the 600 block of Spruce in Kansas City's Northeast area, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Marcus S. Lewis, dob: 9/13/1977, was sentenced to 22 years for Voluntary Manslaughter. In addition, the judge also sentenced him on convictions of Armed Criminal Action, Robbery 2nd Degree and  Felon In Possession of a Firearm. The judge set those sentences to run concurrently to the Voluntary Manslaughter for a total of 22 years.

According to court records, Kansas City police were called to the 600 block of Spruce, near Independence Avenue on the morning of June 25, 2019, and found a victim on the ground. She had been shot multiple times and shell casings were found near the body.  DNA linked the defendant to the crime scene.
