KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The last of three men prosecuted in the shooting death of a 14-year-old girl at a Kansas City water park has been convicted of murder.

A Jackson County jury on Friday found Ce-Antonyo Kennedy guilty of second-degree murder in the 2015 death of Alexis Kane.

Last month, Isaac Carter was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Dominic McDaniel pleaded guilty last year to voluntary manslaughter. All three Kansas City men also were convicted of armed criminal action. They were originally charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say the girl was beaten and shot at The Bay Water Park in south Kansas City. Court documents say Alexis was killed after meeting someone she was communicating with on Facebook.

The jury will recommend sentencing Monday. McDaniel and Carter are scheduled for sentencing April 28.
