Man Found Guilty In 2016 Shooting Outside Bass Pro

Prosecutors say Greg Marvin from Springfield has been found guilty of shooting a man and beating up his ex-girlfriend on the Bass Pro parking lot back in 2016. 

During sentencing, prosecutors talked about Marvin’s history of assaulting this same woman in the past and an ex-wife. 

The jury recommended Marvin be sentenced to decades in prison. 

The judge will make that decision later this year.

Here’s the full information from the Greene County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office:

Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson announces that Greg A. Marvin, 46, of Springfield, MO was found guilty by a Greene County jury for a shooting that occurred on the Bass Pro parking lot on October 8, 2016.

The defendant parked his vehicle on the opposite end of the parking lot from where he knew his ex-girlfriend was parked.

The defendant walked around Bass Pro and over towards her vehicle.

The defendant walked up to his ex-girlfriend and another man when he began shooting the man.

The defendant then assaulted his ex-girlfriend by striking her repeatedly.

During the trial, evidence was presented including a surveillance video from Bass Pro which showed the defendant shoot the man, assault his ex-girlfriend, and run back over to the man who had been shot and continue to assault him.

After a few hours of deliberation, the jury convicted the defendant of first degree assault, armed criminal action, and first degree domestic assault.

In the sentencing phase of the trial, additional evidence was introduced demonstrating that at the time of the crime the defendant was on probation for domestic assault involving the same woman.

Evidence was also introduced of previous domestic violence against the former wife of the defendant.

In the sentencing phase of the trial the Jury recommended Marvin be sentenced to 25 years for first degree assault, 25 years for armed criminal action, and 20 for first degree domestic assault.

The Honorable Calvin Holden will formalize those sentences on March 9, 2018 at 1:30PM, and determine whether the sentences should be served concurrently or consecutively.
