Son sentenced to 12 years for father’s murder

Kyle Webb, a 44-year-old Grandview man, was sentenced late Thursday to 12 years in a Missouri prison for causing his father’s death, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

A Jackson County judge pronounced the sentence this afternoon after a sentencing hearing. Webb pleaded guilty on Feb. 5 to voluntary manslaughter, a Class B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

According to court records, Kyle Webb and his father, Franklin Webb, were upset with each other after the son had attempted to fix a water leak in the basement. They struggled and the son placed himself on top of his father and restrained him a way that the victim couldn’t move. The father struggled and Webb said he bit down on his father’s left thumb and placed his body on his father’s head for several minutes. After his father lost consciousness, the son paced for a couple minutes and called 911.
