OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three Johnson County, Kan., men have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of an 18-year-old Overland Park woman who had been missing for nearly a week.

Prosecutors on Tuesday charged Dustin Hilt, 18, of Shawnee; Gerald Calbeck, 18, of Merriam; and Joseph Mattox, 21, in the death of Keighley Ann Alyea. Her body was found in a Cass County farm field Monday night.

The men are also charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

Alyea disappeared about midnight Sept. 29. An autopsy was being conducted Tuesday at the Jackson County medical examiner's office in Kansas City.

The Johnson County district attorney's office says the three suspects have been given court-appointed attorneys.
