COLUMBIA - Samuel Butler and Joycelynn Brown were both charged with 2nd degree murder in the homicide investigation of Anthony M. Unger on Sunday night. 

"We based our charging decision off information that was contained in the probable cause statements," said Daniel Knight, Boone County Prosecuting Attorney.

Court documents detail Brown's account of the incident, saying Brown gave Unger a ride from Jefferson City to Columbia so Unger could sell a half pound of marijuana for $1,400.  She told police she saw him fill a bag with marijuana and place it under the hood of her car.

The two of them met up with Butler and two other unidentifed men in front of the Hy-Vee at 21 Conley Road. Butler then got in Brown's car and followed a black car to another parking lot at 21 Conley.

According to the probable cause statement, Brown said an unknown suspect asked Unger, "Do you got the s#*t?" and Unger replied "Do you got the money?" Unger retrieved the marijuana from under the hood of the car when the unknown man said he had the money. At that time, the unknown man retrieved a handgun from his car. Brown decided to get out of the car and run. She told police she heard "several" gunshots. She came back to her car and found Unger bleeding and unresponsive when the black car left the scene. 

Butler is being held in the Boone County Jail on a $1 million cash-only bound, and Brown's bond has been set at $500,000.
