Iola resident James Myers has been sentenced to 28 months in prison for his role in helping cover up the murder of Shawn Cook in 2016.  The Iola Register reports that District Judge Daniel Creitz handed down the sentence March 26th. He noted that delaying Myers’ sentencing to this summer could effectively have kept Myers in custody longer than Kansas sentencing guidelines would have allowed.   Myers has been in custody about 20 months. Co-defendant Joshua Knapp must still go to trial to face first-degree murder charges.
A Humboldt native is set to have his first feature length film debut at the Kansas City Film Festival later this month.  According to The Iola Register, “A Fatherless Generation” by Nathan Cheney premieres April 14th.  Cheney interviewed more than a hundred individuals for the film, including a host of celebrities.
