GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A

re­tired po­lice of­fi­cer ac­cused of help­ing his son af­ter he killed and dis­mem­bered a woman in west­ern Michi­gan was con­victed Mon­day of com­mit­ting per­jury and act­ing as an ac­ces­sory.

The Kent County jury was dead­locked and couldn’t reach a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion on an ad­di­tional per­jury charge. The re­sults of James Chance’s trial emerged a few hours af­ter a judge told strug­gling ju­rors to keep work­ing toward a ver­dict.

Chance’s son, Jared Chance, is serv­ing a 100-year prison sen­tence for killing and dis­mem­ber­ing Ash­ley Young in 2018.

Young’s torso was found in the base­ment of Jared Chance’s Grand Rapids rental home, but other re­mains of the 31-year-old woman haven’t been lo­cated. They knew each other.
