Man sentenced to prison in 2017 Topeka triple killing
Categories: 

A 22-year-old Topeka man has been sentenced to about 9 years in prison for his role in a triple homicide that left his best friend dead.

Shane Andrew Mays was sentenced Wednesday for second-degree attempted murder and aggravated battery. Those charges relate to the deaths of 19-year-old Matthew Leavitt and 38-year-old Nicole Fisher, who died along with 20-year-old Luke Davis in March 2017 over an unproven rape allegation against Leavitt. Mays has said he felt pressured into helping with the murders and his attorneys had argued he was a victim in the case.
