Regional News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for fatally shooting a 15-year-old girl outside a Kansas City high school as the teen left a basketball game.

Twenty-four-year-old Jamya Norfleet was sentenced Friday for second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon in the February 2019 death of An’Janique Wright.

The shooting happened outside the Central Academy of Excellence after two groups of people got into an argument at the game and were escorted out separately.

Wright was not enrolled at the school but was there for the game. Charging documents say Norfleet told investigators, “I let the fire go.”
