Michael J. Thompson of Kansas City, Missouri has 60 days to move from his home in the 8600 block of Thompson Avenue after a long-standing feud left one man dead.

Thompson, 42, was convicted in the June 2010 shooting death of 20-year-old Darrell D. Dancy but avoided jail time, instead being placed on probation and ordered to leave the neighborhood.

Thompson said he was only protecting his family from Dancy and his group of friends who, he says, tried in the past to kill his wife, son and mother.

Special prosecutor Rick Holtsclaw said he argued for the maximum 10 years but calls Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Sandra Midkiff's decision a great one and one that should help resolve conflict in the neighborhood.
