COLUMBIA — Darrius Kendal Edwards, one of three people charged in connection with a fatal April 22 shooting, was released from medical treatment around 7 p.m. Wednesday and taken to Boone County Jail.
Edwards, 22, has been charged with second-degree murder and was being held on a $1 million cash bond. She'aun Prince, 22, and Deshai Richardson, 23, have also been charged with second-degree murder.
Prince was also being held in Boone County Jail on a $1 million cash bond, but Richardson was moved to a Missouri Department of Corrections facility on Wednesday because of a parole and probation violation, Columbia Police Officer Wendy Martin said.
Police said Derrick Brookins, 44, joined Edwards, Prince and Richardson to rob an apartment at 920 W. Texas Ave. The apartment's resident fatally shot Brookins and wounded Edwards in self-defense, according to the suspects' probable cause statements.
A person can be charged with second-degree murder in Missouri if someone dies as a result of an illegal act.
Prince's counsel status hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. May 5, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. June 2. Richardson's preliminary hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. June 6.
Edwards' public hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. May 28.
