LEAVENWORTH – After a three-day trial, a jury recently convicted a 46-year-old Kansas City man for attempted involuntary manslaughter for shooting his acquaintance Feb. 13, 2019 at a residence in Easton.
Daniel Wayne Owens is scheduled for sentencing Friday, Nov. 12 in Leavenworth County District Court, Todd Thompson, Leavenworth County Attorney, recently announced in a press release to the Atchison Globe.
