Friday sentencing coming for Wamego man convicted of murder


Cody Lamia-Beck

WESTMORELAND, Kan. — A 24-year-old Wamego man convicted last month of murder will learn his fate at a 9 a.m. hearing Friday in Pottawatomie County District Court.

Cody Lamia-Beck entered a no contest plea and was subsequently found guilty of intentional second-degree murder of Jacob Bouck. Evidence showed Bouck sustained multiple stab wounds and Lamia-Beck’s DNA was found on a homemade hatchet that was located along with two knives. There was also a confession consistent with the evidence found at the crime scene.

Bouck was reported missing Dec. 21. Deputies found his body along the Kansas River west of Wamego on Christmas Eve.
