Warren Frazier convicted of killing Danielle Gray in fight over fake crack
Jurors convicted Warren E. Frazier Wednesday night of first-degree murder for killing Danielle J. Gray during an argument over $20 worth of fake crack.
The Kansas City Star reports that Frazier, 56, testified that he killed Gray, 28, in self-defense after confronting her about selling fake crack in an apartment in the 2100 block of East Linwood on February 2, 2009.

other people who had been burned by fake crack went to complain to the
Frazier claimed Gray attacked him, pulled out a gun (which he wrestled away) and choked him. That’s when he shot her in the back of the head.
Jurors didn’t buy Frazier’s story, especially after witnesses reiterated in testimony what they told police back in February.
