Man charged with killing lawyer after $6M lawsuit judgment
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An 80-year-old Missouri man who lost a nearly $6 million lawsuit to a Kansas City attorney has been charged in the lawyer's shooting death, prosecutors said Wednesday. The Kansas City Star reports David Jungerman is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Tom Pickert. The personal injury attorney was found dead on the front porch of his home on Oct. 25, a day after Jungerman was served with property liens to pay the judgment.
