August 7, 2019

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A grand jury indicted a 19-year-old Jefferson City man in the shooting death of Lincoln University student body president.

Michael Bouchee is charged with second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action in the December death of 23-year-old D’Angelo Bratton-Bland, of Chicago.

A second man, 29-year-old DeAngelo Frazier Jr., of Jefferson City, was indicted by the grand jury in May for second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports the two suspects were charged in December with delivery of a controlled substance in the neighborhood at the time Bratton-Bland was killed.

Witnesses told police the suspects were pointing weapons and yelling at people before Bratton-Bland was shot. Police say Bratton-Bland was walking in the area and did nothing to provoke his shooting.
