The sentence of a man convicted of killing a Junction City woman and her unborn child on Christmas Day in 2018 has been affirmed.

The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday upheld the sentence of Dion Jamal Green, who pleaded guilty to two counts of felony first-degree murder in the death of 31-year-old Jenna Schafer, of Junction City, who was pregnant at the time of her death. Green was sentenced to consecutive life sentences with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Green had challenged the procedures the Geary County District Court used to sentence him.

However the court unanimously affirmed the sentences, saying it found competent evidence supporting the district court’s references to Green having committed the murders in the hope of getting paid.
