KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two more people have been charged in an Independence home invasion that left three people dead and a 12-year-old boy critically injured.
The Jackson County prosecutor's office said Thursday that 22-year-old Raul Soto, of Kansas City, Kan., and 37-year-old Bobbie J. Phillips, of Independence, face nine felony counts, including three counts of first-degree murder. Two other men, 32-year-old Antonio Cervantes III, and 33-year-old Kevin M. Finley, were charged Wednesday with first-degree murder and other counts.
All four defendants are accused in the Nov. 16 shootings that killed 48-year-old Maria Hernandez; her 20-year-old son, Antonio Hernandez; and Tomas Dominguez, previously identified as Tomas Madrigal. A 12-year-old boy is recovering from critical injuries.
Police said robbery and drugs were the apparent motive. No information was available on whether the suspects had lawyers.
