LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — A 31-year-old Kansas City man has pleaded guilty in a crash in Kansas that killed an Illinois man.
Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said Anthony Dorsey pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Nathan Pena, of Brookfield, Illinois. The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash occurred on Interstate 70 in Leavenworth County in September 2019 when Dorsey was fleeing troopers over an alleged vehicle registration violation. The patrol says Pena was driving another vehicle and both men swerved to avoid a collision but their vehicles crashed.
Dorsey faces up to 49 years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 17.
