(KANSAS CITY, Mo., AP) – Two Kansas City men have been charged in a home invasion that left a University of Missouri-Kansas City music student dead and three others wounded.
The Jackson County prosecutor announced Wednesday that 21-year-old Anthony J. Williams and 20-year-old Alonzo D. Ruff face one count each of second-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Aaron Markarian, of Warrensburg. They also are charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and robbery.
The men were arrested Tuesday and prosecutors are requesting $500,000 cash bonds. Prosecutor’s office spokesman Mike Mansur says he doesn’t know if the suspects have attorneys.
Police say intruders robbed eight people and shot four last Thursday at a home south of the Country Club Plaza. The occupants of the house were mostly students from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
