Sgt. William McEntee
CLAYTON, Mo. — Jurors in the second trial of Kevin Johnson quickly found him guilty on Thursday of first-degree murder for gunning down a Kirkwood police officer and set about deciding whether he deserves to pay with his own life.

As the trial moved into its penalty phase, relatives of murdered police Sgt. William McEntee described to jurors who will decide the killer's fate a family that had been "destroyed" by his death.

"It's totally ruined my life," brother Michael McEntee told the jury Thursday evening. "This has completely damaged my family like I can't even describe."
