A $3 million settlement for the parents of a 21-year-old mentally disabled man who was killed during a gas station disturbance in 2010 has received court approval. Frederick Charles Jones Jr., who had schizophrenia, died after a clerk allegedly shot him on September 3, 2010, during a scuffle at a Kansas City convenience store. The 34-year-old clerk, Akbar A. Rana, fled to his home country, India, before prosecutors charged him with voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
Lakhani Commercial Corp. agreed to contribute $2.8 million to the settlement fund, while two other firms that supplied the station with products and marketing, Sunshine Energy LLC and Shell Oil Co., contributed $200,000 and $50,000 respectively. Stephen G. Dickerson from Blatin, Kan., and Jonathan T. Boulton, a lawyer with Boulton, Marin & Buschert in Kansas City, represented the victim’s mother in the case and they did a very good job.
