A northwest Missouri prosecutor has charged three people in the death of a 38-year-old man whose body was discovered in the Missouri River near Leavenworth, Kan.

Nebraska Game and Park employees who were tracking sturgeon found the body of St. Joseph resident Jason Davies on Sept. 19.

KQTV reports the Buchanan County prosecutor on Thursday charged 39-year-old Robert Jarrell and 48-year-old Martin Rilinger with second-degree murder. Thirty-nine-year-old Dollie Williams is charged with tampering with evidence, accused of cleaning up blood from the crime scene.

Court records list a St. Joseph apartment for all three defendants, who did not have lawyers Thursday.

Police say in court documents that Davies was hit several times with a baseball bat and a frying pan during a struggle, then dumped in the river.
