JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (KAKE) -

Two men have been charged with capital murder in the death of a pregnant Kansas woman who was found dead on Christmas.

Geary County Attorney Krista Blaisdell said 33-year-old Dion Jamel Green and 33-year-old Mashaun Ray Baker were charged Monday in the death of Jenna Schafer and her unborn child. Green faces two counts and Baker faces one count.

Charging documents accuse Green of shooting the 31-year-old woman to death as part of a murder-for-hire plot with Baker. The documents say she and the unborn child were killed "intentionally by premeditation" on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. 

Police Capt. Trish Giordano said Schafer was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound around 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 25 in a Junction City apartment. Her obituary said she had two daughters.

Both suspects were scheduled to make a court appearance Tuesday morning.
