Release from the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office: 
Adrian Burks, Black male, DOB: 10-05-71, was sentenced this morning in Wyandotte County District Court to four life sentences in connection with the June 22, 2009, quadruple homicide which occurred in the 5200 block of Muncie Drive in Kansas City, Kansas.

Burks pleaded guilty to four counts of first degree murder on August 27, 2012, in connection with the shooting deaths of Peggy, Castleberry, her three-year old daughter Denea (Juanita) Castleberry, James Warren, and Amanda Remmer.

Wyandotte County District Judge Michael Grosko imposed a life sentence with no chance of parole for 50 years on Burks for each of the murders, and ordered that the sentences run consecutively, making him ineligible for parole for 200 years.

Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome A. Gorman, aided by Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Myers prosecuted the case for the State of Kansas.
