Craigslist killing in Kansas City

Ali Cubba

Yuri Ives met his suspected teenage killer through a Craigslist personal ad:

Don’t let the baby boy looks fool you. According to police in Kansas City, Missouri 17-year-old Ali Cubba is a stone cold killer. Cubba has been arrested for the brutal stabbing and shooting murder of local realtor and community activist Yuri Ives, 48.

It seems that craigslist is living up to its cesspool of crime moniker as Cubba responded to a craigslist personal ad placed by Ives with the intention of robbing him. The robbery went bad and Cubba allegedly stabbed Ives and shot him with his own gun.

Also arrested was 18-year-old Zachary Kimbrell who was the driver in the botched robbery attempt.

Police found Ives’ gun in Cubba’s bedroom and that calls were made from Ives’ cell phone to Cubba.

Both Cubba and Kimbrell have been charged with second degree murder.

Again when you have a website that allows people to communicate with almost total anonymity it’s going to attract criminals from all over the spectrum from con artists to killers.

UPDATE 10/14/12: Cubba has been sentenced to 15 years for 2nd degree murder and 10 years for armed criminal action. Unfortunately the sentences are going to be served concurrently. What a joke.

    Maybe you are not informed of the entire story.

     I will brief you. The Fag you are defending Uri Ives did not father the 2 kids. In fact their mom Laura Lister sold them while I was out of Las Vegas for 2 years. The Bitch hid the fact for another year from me also. Yea I am their father.

     I tried several times to get the kids back and said 1 day ” You know hat I will leave this in Gods hands”. Well looks like God did a better job on the story than I could have. Yuri raised the kids, set them up with a trust fund, then got got him self killed so the boys inherit everything.

    Props to God for a job well done.
