A Kansas City man was charged with murder and two other charges for allegedly shooting and killing a man on Easter.
John Williamson, 30, faces one count each of second-degree murder, armed criminal action and violating a protection order.
According to court documents, Robert Witmer was killed following an argument he and Williamson had Sunday in the 2600 block of Nicholson Avenue in Kansas City.
A witness told police that Witmer had picked up a rock during the argument, and in turn, Williamson said he would shoot him.
Because of the protection order filed March 1, Williamson wasn’t allowed to have a firearm, and he’s being held on a $200,000 bond for allegedly violating that order.
He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 3.
