Dec. 21, 2021

A Jackson County judge on Tuesday sentenced a Kansas City woman to three consecutive Life Without Parole sentences for a triple murder in October 2019 near 45th and South Benton Avenue in KC, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

In November, a Jackson County jury convicted Lynnsey D. Jones, dob: 9/5/1984, of three counts of Murder 1st Degree and three counts of Armed Criminal Action. On Tuesday, a judge sentenced her to three Life Without Parole sentences, running consecutively, and 30 years on the Armed Criminal Action convictions, set to run concurrently with the  other sentences. 

According to court records, Kansas City police responded to the area of 45th  and South Benton Avenue on the sound of gunshots. A woman, the defendant, was taken into custody at the scene. A firearm was recovered from the vehicle that she was observed entering on the passenger side. Another suspect also was taken into custody. Police located three deceased victims at the scene.

Jones will be sentenced by a Jackson County judge in a future hearing. A second defendant in the murders awaits trial.

Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys Jeremy Baldwin, Dion Sankar and Clayton Whitworth prosecute the case on behalf of the state of Missouri.
