KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An 84-year-old man has been convicted of shooting and killing a Kansas City attorney who had previously won a multi-million civil judgment against him. A Jackson County jury deliberated about two hours Thursday before finding David Jungerman, of Raytown, guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the 2017 death of 39-year-old Tom Pickert, who was shot in front of his home after he returned from walking his children to school. Prosecutors said Jungerman was upset that Pickert won a $5.75 million judgment for a homeless man who Jungerman shot in 2012 because he thought the man was stealing from one of his businesses.
