More important than Kansas City metro social media chatter is what the families have to say about this killer who targeted their loved ones.
Still, KILLER KYLR attempted to steal the spotlight . . .
Judge Collins denied Yust’s attorneys’ motion for a new trial. His attorneys did not comment as they left the courthouse. Yust refused to answer any of the judge’s routine questions that are asked at the end of a sentencing hearing about his legal counsel.
