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 who pleaded no contest in January to furnishing alcohol to a 13-year-old girl and trying to sexually molest her was sentenced Thursday to 4 1/2 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Andrew Headding, 24, was staying at the home of a friend in October 2012 when he took the girl to the basement, forced her to drink vodka and played a “dirty” card game with her. Prosecutors said he then made her remove her clothes and molested her, and that a second incident involving the same girl occurred a month later.

District Judge Bruce Brown imposed the maximum sentence on Headding on one count each of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child, attempted aggravated indecent solicitation and furnishing alcohol to a minor. He ordered Headding to serve the sentences consecutively.
