The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Kirk Mitchell

A Den­ver jury has found one man guilty and ac­quit­ted an­other in the shoot­ing death of a teenager dur­ing an at­tempted rob­bery, au­thor­i­ties say.

Af­ter an 11- day trial in Den­ver Dis­trict Court, Ken­trall Hines, 20, was con­victed of felony mur­der, at­tempt to com­mit ag­gra­vated rob­bery and con­spir­acy to com­mit ag­gra­vated rob­bery for the at­tempted rob­bery and shoot­ing death of 19- yearold Randy Can­is­ter.

Hines was sen­tenced to life in pri­son im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing his Wed­nes­day con­vic­tion. He was ac­quit­ted of one count of first- de­gree mur­der.

Hines’ co- de­fen­dant Qa’shelby Fra­zier- Moore, 22, was ac­quit­ted of felony mur­der and rob­bery.

Can­is­ter was shot the evening of Feb. 17, 2015, his body left on the street at East Robins Drive and Ire­land Street in the Green Val­ley Ranch neigh­bor­hood. Po­lice said the shoot­ing ap­peared to be gang- re­lated.

Can­is­ter’s mother, Sher­mika Mims, said Thurs­day that ju­rors must not have been lis­ten­ing care­fully enough to tes­ti­mony when they ac­quit­ted Fra­zier-Moore. “I do be­lieve justice was not served for my son.”
