A Lawrence man pleaded no contest Monday to trying to kill a Kansas City man in June, Douglas County court records said.

James "Jimmy" McAdams, 19, entered pleas to charges of attempted second-degree murder and aggravated intimidation of a witness or victim, both felonies.

McAdams is scheduled to be sentenced by Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild at 8:30 a.m. March 2.
