Two Men Charged in Double Homicide in Kansas City
Two Kansas City men have been charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding a third.
Twenty-one-year-old Jimmie Verge was charged Wednesday and 20-year-old Anthony Murphy last week with two counts of second-degree murder in the shootings of Fanandous Groves and Gerrod Woods. The victims both were 23 and from Kansas City.
Bail is set at $750,000 for Verge and $500,000 for Murphy. No attorneys are listed for them in online court records.
Court records say the victims were attacked Dec. 14 after being lured to a supposed marijuana deal. Woods died at the scene and Groves at a hospital. A third man was shot in the face but survived.
Verge and Murphy also are charged with robbery, assault and armed criminal action.
