Kansas City couple charged in New Year’s Day slaying

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City couple has been charged in the killing of a man and the wounding of a woman after a New Year’s Day party.

Twenty-nine-year-old Ramon Boyd and 19-year-old Destynie Wright were charged Wednesday with second-degree murder in the death of Sederick Jones. They’re also charged with first-degree assault in the wounding of Wright’s friend.

Bond is set at $250,000 each. It wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys.

Court records say the victims were found in a parking lot near an event hall where the party was held. Police later linked a blood-smattered vehicle to Wright.

She told authorities Jones had showed up unexpectedly and tried to get her friend to leave with him. Cell phone records show Wright then urged Boyd to “come get him now!!!!!!”
