Suspect in Kansas City trail killings charged in new casePosted on 6 October 2017 at 11:57pm
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A suspect in the surprise-attack shooting deaths of two men in Kansas City is now charged in a woman's killing.
Prosecutors on Friday charged 22-year-old Fredrick Demond Scott of Kansas City with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of 64-year-old Karen Harmeyer of Grandview.
The indictment didn't include details of the death but KCTV reports an officer was called in July to investigate a dead body. Once the officer arrived, witnesses told him about Harmeyer, who lived in woods behind a church.
The officer entered the campsite and found her decomposed body inside a tent.
Scott previously was charged in two killings and is a person of interest in three others.
The men were shot in surprise attacks, some near recreation trails.
