K.C. woman convicted of reduced charge in shooting death

KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City woman who was briefly on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list was found guilty of reduced charges in a fatal shooting.

Shauntay Henderson, 26, had been charged with second-degree murder in the September 2006 shooting death of 20-year-old DeAndre Parker outside a convenience store.

Henderson waived her right to a jury trial. Jackson County Circuit Judge Robert Michael Schieber convicted her Tuesday of voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.

Henderson was arrested in March 2007, just hours after she was placed on the Most Wanted list.

Authorities had described Henderson as a Kansas City gang leader and "person of interest" in other homicides. But she was charged with only Parker's death.
