The slaying of Kansas City, Missouri, attorney Tom Pickert in his front yard last year October sent waves through his quiet neighborhood that is residential its [obvious] senselessness. The alleged old man has been has been charged with murder.

Witness accounts, however, provided a point that is police that is starting An older, gray-haired man parked a white van across the street from Pickert's home that morning. A van that is similar seen speeding away in the brief moments after the attorney was gunned down.

Farmer and baby furniture maker David Jungerman — the defendant that is losing a lawsuit that is civil Pickert had won months earlier — was being linked on social media to the shooting. Local media reports noted that he owned a white van, physically matched the suspect's description and had a "history of violent and vindictive behavior."

"People, uh, know that I murdered that son of a b----," he is quoted as saying, according to a probable cause affidavit.

 Jungerman pleaded not guilty Thursday to the charges in Jackson County Circuit Court. His attorney, Daniel Ross, said his client "emphatically denies" the allegations against him.
On Wednesday, Pickert's widow, Emily Riegel, thanked investigators as they laid out the charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

"For 168 days we've all wondered if this day would come," Riegel told reporters. "We had hoped and prayed. We've been in the turmoil of the unknown."
According to Jackson County prosecutors, that turmoil began when Jungerman and Pickert first became entangled in a legal case in 2012.

Jungerman didn't call police or warn he would shoot, Harris said, so he sued for assault and battery. In July, a jury awarded Harris $5.75 million.

Pickert during the trial said Jungerman had a history of allegedly pulling a gun on people or shooting at them. Jungerman, who argued that he was acting in self-defense, said he was going to appeal the case.

Then, on Oct. 25, Pickert was murdered after returning home from walking his two young sons to school.
