Federal prosecutors allege 2 men kidnapped, killed man
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Federal prosecutors allege that two Kansas City men killed a man after kidnapping him and attempting to use his debit card.
The U.S. attorney's office said 25-year-old Raynal King and 22-year-old Howard Ross III were charged in a six-count superseding indictment returned Tuesday.
The indictment adds Ross as a defendant and includes counts of carjacking and kidnapping resulting in the September death of 28-year-old Jaime Patton. The affidavit said Patton called his wife asking for the PIN to their debit card after leaving a hospital. Surveillance video from ATM locations where efforts to use the card failed show someone driving Pattton's vehicle and Patton in the passenger seat.
Patton was shot and left lying on a Kansas City road. Court documents said King blamed the shooting on someone else.
