MOUND CITY – (April 11, 2018) – A Pittsburg man today pleaded no contest to two counts of first-degree premeditated murder for the 2016 deaths of two family members, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

David Patrick McNabb, 32, pleaded no contest to the two counts of first-degree premeditated murder as well as one count of felony theft and one count of interference with law enforcement. District Court Judge Mark Ward accepted the pleas and adjudged McNabb guilty of the crimes.
