    CLAYTON, Mo. (AP/KMOV) -- Kevin Johnson was sentenced to death on Friday morning for the 2005 killing of Kirkwood Police Sergeant William McEntee.

    A St. Louis County jury recommended in November that the Johnson, 22, receive the death penalty after finding him guilty of first-degree murder.

    It was the second trial for Johnson. A jury in April deadlocked, prompting a mistrial.

    Johnson testified that on the day of the killing he was distraught over the death of his 12-year-old half-brother. Witnesses said they heard Johnson say he blamed police for the boy's death.

    Johnson testified he was in a trance-like state when he shot McEntee, a 43-year-old father of three and a 20-year veteran of the Kirkwood department.

    Supreme Court upholds Johnson death penalty

    The Missouri Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the first-degree murder conviction and death sentence of Kevin Johnson of Kirkwood.

    Johnson was sentenced to death in November 2007 for the 2005 shooting death of Kirkwood Police Sgt. William McEntee.

    His first trial, in April 2007, was declared a mistrial, with jurors left undecided whether Johnson's murder conviction should be in the first or second degree.

    In his second trial in November 2007, a St. Louis County jury delivered a unanimous verdict of first-degree murder. Johnson was later given the death penalty.

    Johnson's defense lawyers were pursuing a new trial that raised 14 appeal points, including the jury's death sentence recommendation.

    The Missouri Supreme Court's May 26 opinion reads, in part:

    "The evidence supports, beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury's findings of three aggravating factors... Further, the death sentence here is neither excessive or disproportionate."

    McEntee was responding to a fireworks complaint in the Meacham Park neighborhood of Kirkwood on July 5, 2005, when he was shot several times. He died of gunshot wounds later in the evening at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in Creve Coeur.

    Over the course of his two trials, Johnson's defense attorneys argued that the shooting was Johnson's response to the way police handled the death of his 12-year-old brother, Joseph "Bam Bam" Long, earlier in the day. An autopsy revealed Joseph's death occurred as a result of a congenital heart defect.

    McEntee, 43 at the time of the shooting, was in his 19th year as a member of the Kirkwood Police Department. A resident of South County, McEntee was married and had three children.

    The Missouri Supreme Court's opinion in this case is available online at www.courts.mo.gov. Click on the "opinions" link on the home page, then "5/26/2009."

    Mo. court upholds conviction in police slaying

    The Missouri Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction of a death row inmate who shot a suburban St. Louis police officer.

    The court's 5-2 decision Tuesday dealt with Kevin Johnson. He was convicted of fatally shooting Kirkwood Police Sgt. Bill McEntee in 2005.

    Johnson's current attorneys raised about a dozen claims that his original attorneys were ineffective. Among other things, they claimed the presence of numerous uniformed police in the courtroom and halls could have influenced jurors to find Johnson guilty.

    Judge George Draper III rejected that argument in the Supreme Court's majority opinion.

    But judges Patricia Breckenridge and Laura Denvir Stith dissented. They said Johnson's attorneys should have objected to the police presence, and he deserves a hearing on whether he got a fair trial.

    On February 28, 2018, Johnson's habeas petition was DENIED by US District Court Judge Limbaugh (G.W. Bush). The judge is Rush Limbaugh's cousin.

    So two years later and no word on whether he was denied by the 8th circuit?
