SIKESTON, Mo. -– Authorities have charged three people in the death of a 66-year-old Kansas man reported missing in southeast Missouri.
The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports Larry Weaver of Pittsburg, Kansas, was reported missing late last month after he failed to check out of a Sikeston motel. Authorities discovered his motorcycle was also missing, but his wallet and other belongings were left in his motel room. His body was found Saturday in a cotton field in New Madrid County.
Records show 40-year-old Elsie M. Coleman Hamilton and 49-year-old Ronnie Carl Robinson Sr., both of North Little Rock, Arkansas, and 35-year-old Larenzle Coleman, of Oakfield, Tennessee, are charged with first-degree murder in Weaver’s death.
An autopsy shows Weaver had been tied up and beaten.
