LOUISBURG, Mo. – A 31-year-old southwestern Missouri man has been found guilty in the death of his boss, who was stabbed more than 30 times.

Adam Redding was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the December 2017 death of 73-year-old Carroll Ford. Redding pleaded guilty to two counts of forgery.

KYTV reports prosecutors said Ford was found dead on his farm near Louisburg.

Redding apparently became angry when Ford confronted him about not showing up for work. Investigators also said at the time of Ford’s death they found checks with forged signatures transferring money from Ford’s account to Redding’s mother and girlfriend.

Investigators said Redding returned to the farm to see if Ford was still alive but he had already died.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 11.
