January 13, 2020
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A retired police officer accused of helping his son after the death and dismemberment of a woman in western Michigan has been convicted of committing perjury and acting as an accessory. The Kent County jury couldn't reach a unanimous decision Monday on an additional perjury charge against James Chance. The results of the trial emerged a few hours after a judge told struggling jurors to keep working toward a verdict. Chance's son, Jared Chance, is serving a 100-year prison sentence for killing and dismembering Ashley Young in 2018.
