Woman gets 32 years in prison for New Year's shooting

JACKSON COUNTY, Mo. - A woman has been sentenced 32 years in prison for her role in a shooting that happened on New Year’s Day of last year.

Destynie J. Wright, 20, has been sentenced for the shooting of Sederick J. Jones and the wounding of another person.

A Jackson County jury convicted Wright of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, two counts of armed criminal action, and tampering with evidence.

According to court records, Jones’ body and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds were located in a parking lot in the 5200 block of E. 112th Terrace around 2:49 a.m. on New Year’s Day in 2016.

Police say used blood evidence to link Wright to the shooting and found text messages to Boyd about Jones saying "come get him now!!!!!"

A co-defendant in this homicide has yet to stand trial.
