Two more men charged in shooting death of 3-year-old
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Two more Kansas City men have been charged in the drive-by shooting death of a sleeping 3-year-old boy that prosecutors say was in revenge for an earlier slaying.
The Kansas City Star reports 24-year-old Dominque Marchbanks and 26-year-old Sulif Wilkins were charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the May 31 death of Amorian Hale.
A third suspect, 23-year-old SirTerry Stevenson, was charged last summer with first-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action in Amorian's death.
The boy was asleep in a first-floor bedroom when a car drove by and someone sprayed the home with bullets from an assault-style rifle, hitting him in the head. Prosecutors believe the shooting was in retaliation for the death of Marchbanks' brother four months earlier.
