August 5, 2019

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A Marion man has been given 50 years for killing a Cedar Rapids woman during a break-in.

Linn County District Court records say 20-year-old Kyler Junkins also was sentenced Friday to 10 years for burglary, a term to be served at the same time as his sentence for second-degree murder. He was ordered to pay $150,000 restitution to her heirs or her estate. He’d pleaded guilty after making a deal with prosecutors.

Police say Junkins was involved in breaking into the apartment of 18-year-old AnnaElise Edgeton and shooting her. Her body was found Jan. 13 last year.
