Two men charged with murder in Des Moines shooting

DES MOINES (AP) — Authorities say two men have been arrested and charged with the slaying of another Des Moines man.

Police say 18-year-old Marquice Morris and 20-year-old Joshua McCoy have been arrested and charged with robbery and first-degree murder.

They're suspected of killing 20-year-old Christopher Byers, who was shot inside his house a little before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Police say Byers died later at a hospital.

Online court records don't list the names the attorneys for Morris and McCoy.
