A Shawnee man has been found guilty of causing a 2015 traffic crash that killed a 17-month-old girl.
Boyd Chism, 41, pleaded no contest Thursday in Johnson County District Court to a charge of reckless second-degree murder in the November 2015 death of Addilynn Poole.
Chism also pleaded no contest to a charge of aggravated battery for injuries suffered by another child.
A judge accepted the pleas and found Chism guilty. His sentencing is scheduled for May 11.
Chism was fleeing after a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop him for speeding when his car crashed into a vehicle driven by Addilynn’s mother at 175th Street and Pflumm Road.
