Man sentenced for killing the mother of his children


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 34-year-old Kansas City man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for killing the mother of his children. Christopher Spears was sentenced Tuesday for shooting Andrea Dean in a Kansas City home last June. He was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action. The Jackson County Prosecutor’s office said three children at the home told police their dad shot their mom during an argument. After the shooting, Spears went to a fire station and told them he had killed the mother of his children. He told police he and Dean were fighting over a gun when it went off and shot her in the head.
