COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The man convicted of a 2018 deadly killing at a Columbia Waffle House plans to appeal his sentence.
Matthew McMillan was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison for the death of Anthony Warren. He was found guilty of several charges including a count of second-degree murder in November. Boone County Judge Jodie Asel ruled that McMillan will serve the four sentences at the same time.
Online court documents say McMillan's attorney filed a notice of appeal on Wednesday.
Warren was shot to death by security guard Robert Moses, but McMillan was charged under Missouri's "felony murder" law because he pulled a gun, causing a chaotic scene that led to Warren's fatal shooting. Warren's family members filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Moses in 2018. Court filings from May show a jury trial is scheduled to start on July 13.
