The Kansas Supreme Court upheld the conviction of Elgin Ray Robinson Junior for
the death of Chelsea Brooks. Robinson was convicted of capital murder, rape,
aggravated kidnapping and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
Robinson offered his friend $1,000 to kill 14-year-old Brooks. She was nine
months pregnant with Robinson's baby at the time. The jury was unable to agree
on whether to impose the death penalty, so Robinson was sentenced to life
without parole plus 247 months.
Brooks disappeared in 2006 after she went roller skating with some friends. She
left the skating rink with Everett Gentry, a friend of Robinson. She was never
seen again, her body was discovered several days later in a shallow grave in a
field outside of Wichita.
