Crime Stoppers and the Wichita Police Department are asking for the public's help to solve several cold case homicides. Today we are seeking information on a homicide that occurred Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. Timothy McGuigan was suppose to have breakfast with his son that morning, but never arrived; he didn't show up for work either. Worried co-workers called his son and asked him to check on his father. The son went to his father's house in the 2500 block of North Woodridge and found him dead. When police arrived they discovered that McGuigan had been shot multiple times with a small caliber handgun. There was no sign of forced entry, and robbery does not appear to be the motive.

A Wichita man charged with taking part in a vigilante slaying in College Hill Park last year was convicted of first-degree murder Thursday after he took the stand and told the jury that his co-defendant was responsible for the crime.

Kyle Carter, 31, admitted that he chased burglary suspect Carl Cooper into the park after Cooper had burglarized a car, but he said he had no idea that the victim had been stabbed until long after the confrontation was over.

“Did you stab Carl Cooper?” defense lawyer Quentin Pittman asked.

Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday in the trial of a Wichita man charged with murder in a stabbing death in College Hill Park that Wichita police said was a case of vigilante justice.

Kyle A. Carter, 31, is standing trial in the death of Carl A. Cooper, a 34-year-old parolee who was chased down by two men after breaking into a BMW on the morning of Sept. 8. Carter admits chasing Cooper but contends that his co-defendant, Trenton H. Custer, 35, is the one who stabbed him. Custer is scheduled to stand trial in July.

Among the witnesses testifying Wednesday was Michelle Wilmore, who owned the BMW.

A former Augusta police officer convicted of a child sex crime will be subject to lifetime post-release supervision, a Butler County judge ruled Monday.

But the supervision is just a “potential sanction” that would be imposed only if Jerry D. Ballinger violates his probation and is forced to serve his underlying prison sentence of 34 months, Butler County Attorney Darrin Devinney said.

Ballinger, 45, is in the early stages of serving five years’ probation after he was sentenced April 7 on one count of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with child. A defense motion asking the court to find lifetime post-release supervision unconstitutional prompted a Butler County judge to delay ruling on the matter until Monday.
