Attorney general's office to assist against manhunt murder suspect
JEFFERSON CITY - Attorney General Chris Koster's office announced Thursday they will assist Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Carroz in prosecuting the case against accused murderer Pablo Serrano-Vitorino.
Serrano-Vitorino is charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, and burglary in the shooting death of Randy Nordman, 49, of New Florence, on Tuesday morning. Serrano-Vitorino is also accused of shooting to death four men Monday night in Kansas City, KS.
Early Wednesday morning, Koster called Prosecutor Carroz to offer his assistance and to discuss legal matters related to the case. Governor Nixon appointed Attorney General Koster’s office to assist in the case Wednesday afternoon as Carroz requested.
Koster served as prosecuting attorney for Cass County for 10 years. During that time, he prosecuted serial killer John Robinson, who murdered women in both Kansas and Missouri.
“This is an unimaginable tragedy for the family and friends of Randy Nordman and the four men murdered in Kansas City, Kansas,” Koster said. “My office will work tirelessly to bring justice for Mr. Nordman.”
Koster said the Montgomery County prosecution will occur prior to proceedings in Kansas.
