Prosecutor Charges Two in JC Double Homicide
Cole County Prosecuting Attorney Bill Tackett charged Charles Samuel, 35, and Dennis Washington, 33, with second-degree murder and second-degree assault in connection with the fatal shootings of Earnest Wilson and Quinton Chandler on a Jefferson City street.
"We wanted to alleviate any concern that the communtiy might still have, that there is still a potential threat for the community," said Police Capt. Michael Smith. "At this point, we don't believe there is."
Jefferson City police say they probably won't release the third suspect's name until next week.
