Kirksville Man Sentenced in 2019 Fatal Shooting

A Kirksville man has been sentenced in a 2019 murder case. Andrew Head was convicted of second-degree murder, and armed criminal action in June for the shooting in 2019 that killed 17-year-old Izaiha McFarland. Head was the accomplice in the shooting, who allegedly convinced the other suspect, Drake Zanoni, to fire the weapon. Yesterday, Second Circuit Presiding Judge Russell Steele sentenced Head to 27 years in prison – 20 years for the murder charge and seven years for the armed criminal action charge. Head must serve 85 percent of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
