Federal Prosecutors Allege 2 Men Kidnapped, Killed Man

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Federal prosecutors allege that two Kansas City men killed a man after kidnapping him and attempting to use his debit card.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 25-year-old Raynal King and 22-year-old Howard Ross III were charged in a six-count superseding indictment returned Tuesday.

The indictment adds Ross as a defendant and includes counts of carjacking and kidnapping resulting in the September death of 28-year-old Jaime Patton. The affidavit says Patton called his wife asking for the PIN to their debit card after leaving a hospital. Surveillance video from ATM locations where efforts to use the card failed show someone driving Pattton’s vehicle and Patton in the passenger seat.

Patton was shot and left lying on a Kansas City road. Court documents say King blamed the shooting on someone else.
