2 charged with not reporting deaths of slain Missouri couple

TUNAS, Mo. (AP) — Two men have been charged with visiting the scene where a southwest Missouri couple was killed in a shootout and not telling authorities they had seen the bodies.

Twenty-one-year-old Kody Brian Wilson and 26-year-old Cody Depriest are charged with abandonment of a corpse in the deaths of Joe and Brandy Allen. The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office says in a Facebook post that the couple died in a gunfight with two other suspects, Billy Sage Medley and Jeffery Stevenson, after interrupting a robbery.

The post says Wilson and Depriest went to the scene three times without reporting the deaths. Wilson also is charged with hindering prosecution for allegedly harboring Medley.

Stevenson was arrested last week and charged with murder; Medley remains on the run.

No attorneys are listed for them in online court records.
