(Jefferson City) – Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster’s office says that a Shannon County man has been convicted of 18 criminal counts, including murder and burglary.
On Wednesday, Koster announced 37th Circuit Judge David Evans found Roy Bradshaw of Shannon County guilty of 18 criminal counts, including 2nd degree murder, 1st degree burglary, 1st degree robbery, three counts of felonious restraint, three counts of kidnapping, and nine counts of armed criminal action. The crimes occurred on May 7, 2008 in Shannon County, but were tried in Oregon County on a change of venue.
The case was prosecuted by Shannon County Prosecuting Attorney Jodi Barnes and the AG’s office.
Koster says Bradshaw and his girlfriend, Jaclyn Agee, broke into the Shannon County home of Albert Shoemaker May 7, 2008, tied him up, and ransacked his house. During the robbery, Shoemaker’s live-in girlfriend arrived home with two friends. She tried to run, but Bradshaw shot and killed her as she ran. Shoemaker and the friends were then ordered into a car at gunpoint, but the two friends were later released. Shomaker then convinced Bradshaw and his girlfriend that he would get rid of Shoemaker’s girlfriend’s body for them, so they left the scene. Bradshaw was arrested and gave a videotaped confession.
Bradshaw’s sentencing is scheduled for December 10.
Agee was convicted of all of the same offenses by a Butler County jury in July 2010. She is serving a 15-year sentence.
