Stockbroker slams judge, jury following conviction


A former Prescott stockbroker slammed the judicial system following his conviction on first-degree murder in the death of his ex-wife, saying neither the judge nor the jury was competent.

The comments from Steven DeMocker came in a synopsis of recorded jail conversations with his family.

DeMocker said he cannot understand why he was found guilty of killing Carol Kennedy at her home in 2008 without any evidence directly tying him to the crime.

Defense attorney Craig Williams said Thursday that DeMocker was in a state of shock and disputed the accuracy of the synopsis produced by the Yavapai County Attorney's Office.

The document was released to The Associated Press through a public records request.

DeMocker is set to be sentenced next week on murder and six other charges.
