    MO - Couple & 2 children murdered, Raytown, 16 March 2009

    This is a local story for me and it's absolutely horrifying. I am definitely going to be keeping a close eye on it....wondering if there are any other locals who are watching this case.

    But most shocking were the graphic images of the victims, including two young brothers, Amir Clemons, 10, and Gerard Clemons Jr., 7, whose bodies lay near each other on a cluttered bedroom floor.

    Anderson’s defense team made clear it would seek to implicate another man as the killer. That man also will testify against Anderson.

    So far in the trial, which is expected to last at least two weeks, the defense has hammered at witnesses who put Anderson at the scene.

    According to Bradley, Anderson said that Gerard begged him not to kill him and said he would not tell anyone. Anderson said he stabbed the boy and said he would not die, Bradley recalled his cousin saying.

    Bradley testified that Anderson told him that Triplett said, "Oh Lord, forgive me for whatever I did to this man," and then he shot and stabbed her.

    Bradley said that Anderson also bragged that the police didn't have anything on him, then teased him about his problems with the five mothers of his 10 children because Anderson said he took care of his.

    The jury began their deliberations this afternoon. I am very curious as to how long it will take them to reach a verdict.

    Good long article from the Star's Donald Bradley:

    Anderson convicted in quadruple murder case
    ---
    Prosecutor Tammy Dickinson today painted Anderson as a cold-blooded killer who slaughtered four persons with a gun and knife and then left his toddler son alive to play in the blood.
    ---
    “He didn’t shoot them from across the room,” Dickinson said. “He stabbed them a total of 175 times. Strangers don’t do that; this was personal.”

    On March 28, a jury needed only 90 minutes to find Anderson, 26, guilty of four counts of first-degree murder. Besides Amir Clemons and Gerard Clemons Jr., their aunt, Precious Triplett, 21, — Anderson’s former girlfriend — and her boyfriend, Andre Jones Sr., 33, also were killed.

    On Friday, Jackson County Circuit Judge Michael Manners sentenced Anderson to life in prison without parole, the maximum punishment allowed in non-death penalty cases. But Manners ordered that the four sentences run consecutively
