TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Three people have been charged with kidnapping a woman and killing her while holding her captive on the Fort Riley military base.
The U.S. attorney’s office says an indictment was returned Wednesday against 26-year-old Larry L. Anderson, 23-year-old Marryssa M. Middleton and 24-year-old Drexel A. Woody. All three are being held in the Geary County Jail on a charge of kidnapping resulting in death for the February 2014 killing of 24-year-old Amanda Clemons of Junction City. No attorneys are listed for them in online court records.
Witnesses reported seeing Clemons being placed in a car outside a Junction City motel the night she disappeared. An autopsy determined that Clemons died of a sharp-force injury.
If convicted, the suspects could face a maximum penalty of life in federal prison without parole.
