Box Cutter Death


OLATHE, Kan. (AP) A Kansas City, Kan., man has been found guilty of killing a man at a hotel with box cutter.

A Johnson County jury this week convicted Maurice Orlando Stewart, 26, of killing Stephen Cook, 57, of California at an Olathe hotel. He was convicted of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and theft.

Olathe police found Cook’s body in June 2010 inside the bathroom of his motel room at an Econo Lodge in Olathe.

The Kansas City Star reports an autopsy found that Cook bled to death from numerous cuts. He also suffered a broken sternum and broken ribs.

Stewart had occupied the room next to Cook.
