KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 67-year-old man accused of stalking several women who worked at massage parlors has been found guilty on eight of 10 federal charges against him.

Robert Gross, who has a criminal record dating back to the 1960s, was convicted Wednesday on two of four stalking charges and six gun-related charges.

The Kansas City Star reported federal prosecutors accused Gross of stalking several women between Oct. 1 and Dec. 22, 2017, mostly employees of massage parlors in Lawrence and Johnson County, Kansas. The women told police their cars were keyed, screws drilled into their tires and their windows smashed out.

The Star reported in a 2018 series of stories that law enforcement officers suspect Gross is responsible for the killings of several people, including two women who worked in the massage business. He has not been charged in the homicides.

Gross' attorney presented no evidence during the trial.

He was arrested in December 2017 after buying two guns in Liberty.
