KANSAS CITY (AP) - A 46-year-old man has been charged with killing a mother, son and a family friend at a central Kansas City house in January.
Anthony W. Walker of Kansas City was charged Tuesday with three counts of first-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action and first-degree burglary.
Prosecutors allege Walker shot and killed 62-year-old Donna Pike, her 41-year-old son Herschel Pike, and 57-year-old Edward Williams on Jan. 16. Prosecutors say Williams was coming to the Pikes' home to check on them when he was shot.
Walker is currently in federal custody. A $250,000 cash bond was set in the murder case.
Online court records do not indicate whether Walker has retained a lawyer.
