Man sentenced in Pettis County murder trial

Noah Kelliker , of Marshall, Mo., is now sentenced to life in prison and up to 15 years in prison on three felony counts including second-degree murder. He will serve the sentences concurrently–meaning Kelliker could eventually be eligible for parole.

A jury found Kelliker guilty of second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon in January. Prosecutors say in January 2018, Kelliker killed 21-year-old Cassandra L. White at her home in the Western View Estates Trailer Park on Oak Grove Lane.

Phillip Sawyer, the Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney, told us the family felt like justice had been served. Sawyer told us he had asked for two life sentences and 15 years to be served consecutively, and that he was admittedly disappointed in the sentencing.

After the Jan. 10, 2018 shooting, law enforcement officials received an anonymous tip that the shooting suspect was Noah Kelliker , a probable cause statement said.

When investigators found Kelliker , he allegedly had a gun with bullets matching descriptions of those at the crime scene. Kelliker was also allegedly wearing clothes that had large amounts of what appeared to be dried blood.

According to documents, deputies said they tried to ask Kelliker about the shooting. At first, he did not want to talk, but then, documents say, Kelliker claimed he ” might know something ” and apparently began crying.
