Two men have been charged in the fatal shootings of two ex-roommates in a southwest Missouri home and one of the suspects also is charged with killing a woman one day later.
Twenty-three-year-old Luis Perez was charged Tuesday with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 38-year-old Steven Marler, 23-year-old Aaron Hampton and 21-year-old Sabrina Starr.
A second man, 19-year-old Aaron Anderson, is charged as an accomplice with murder in the men’s deaths. Starr was believed to be outside the home when the men were killed Thursday and was slain Friday.
They’re jailed without bond in Greene County.
Charging documents say Perez had recently come to Springfield from New Jersey, where he had active warrants. Police say federal authorities believe he’s in the country illegally.
