Three Sedalia Juveniles Charged In The Murder Of Tylar Simon
Three juveniles have been charged in the murder of 32-year-old Tylar Simon, who died during a burglary at 1815 South Kentucky.
Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney Phillip Sawyer announced at 6 p.m. Friday that on Feb. 24, felony complaints were filed and warrants were issued for 15-year-old Charles J. Boone, 16-year-old Andrew R. Knoeferl and 15-year-old Jayden W. Miller, all of Sedalia.
All three were charged with 2nd degree murder, 1st-degree burglary, armed criminal action, tampering with physical evidence and 1st degree assault. Boone and Knoeferl were also charged with 2nd degree burglary. This stems from a previous burglary at the same address.
