Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Fusselman this week filed 18 additional charges against each man for a series of crimes they allegedly committed before and after Kaser's death. The charges include robbery, assault, theft and tampering with a motor vehicle.
Nichols is jailed in Chariton County, and Lewis is in the Randolph County Jail on $1 million bond.
Prosecutors allege the men stole vehicles, shot two other people, assaulted others and committed several thefts on the day of Kaser's death.
Moberly is about 35 miles north of Columbia.
