Two men allegedly involved in a July traffic accident that killed a Kansas City crime lab technician have been charged in federal court with illegally possessing firearms.
A grand jury issued the sealed indictment against Larneal D. Davis, 28, and Christopher L. Murray, 25, earlier this week, charging each with possessing weapons after being convicted of a felony.
Michael Chou, 29, died July 6 when his car was struck by a vehicle involved in a high-speed chase by Kansas City police. Authorities found two handguns in the wreckage of Davis’ vehicle, prosecutors said.
Davis also is facing a manslaughter charge and is scheduled for trial in June.
He was convicted of possessing drugs with the intent to distribute them in 2004. Murray has prior convictions for assault, armed criminal action, burglary and theft.
