Marshal Kitchens was shot and killed at a local cafe by the owner when he went there to investigate a reported disturbance. The owner killed him when he attempted to arrest his son. The owner told officers who later arrested him that he shot Marshal Kitchens because he did not want anybody coming into his place and taking his son.

The suspect was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to 14 years. He received a new trial, resulting in a manslaughter conviction, and was sentenced to 7 years. On December 10, 1947, the Missouri Supreme Court reversed his conviction and he was released from prison.
