A 30-year-old Augusta, Kan., man has been found guilty in the 2016 shooting death of another man at a bar in Olathe.
Michael Wayne Chinn Jr. pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in the killing of 38-year-old William Schutkesting.
Chinn also pleaded no contest to aggravated assault and discharge of a firearm in an occupied dwelling.
A Johnson County District Court judge accepted the no contest pleas and found Chinn guilty.
Never miss a local story.
Schutkesting of Olathe, who was known as Billy, was fatally shot on March 30, 2016, at the Double Nickel Bar & Grill at 189 S. Rogers Road.
As part of the plea agreement, Chinn will be taken to the Larned State Hospital for a mental evaluation.
His attorney, Carl Cornwell, said that while he decided to not pursue a defense to the charges based on a mental disease or defect, the evaluation was being sought to assist the judge in determining an appropriate sentence.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 15.
