Nov. 22, 2012

Two others have been charged in the Independence homicide,

Independence, Mo., Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Raul Soto, 22, and Bobby Jo Phillips, 37, face nine felony counts, including three counts of Murder 1st Degree, Assault 1st and four counts of Armed Criminal Action.

Two others, Antonio Cervantes III, 32, and Kevin M. Finley, 33, were charged in the triple homicide on Wednesday.

Independence police detectives worked through the night to investigate the crimes, resulting in the additional charges today. The defendants are being held in the Jackson County Detention Center without bond.
