Kemper was found guilty of first-degree murder among other crimes.

Family members said Walker was killed at a family gathering in north St. Louis. Loved ones had gathered at a home along West Evans Avenue to mourn the recent loss of a loved one. They said Kemper shot and killed the victim outside of the home. They said Kemper's family and the victim's family were close friends.

The victim's cousin, Serena Wilson-Griffin, said witnesses in the case had to deal with a lot of witness intimidation but it did not stop them from doing what was right.

Kemper will be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
