COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ A 25-year-old man has been charged in the September shooting deaths of two men in Columbia.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Darious Lucas was charged Thursday with two counts each of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the deaths of 42-year-old James Richardson and 42-year-old Kenneth Long. It was not immediately clear if Lucas has an attorney.

Authorities say Richardson’s body was found near the entrance of the closed El Ray Mobile Home Park, and Long’s body was found in a field that previously housed the mobile home park.

Lucas’ bond has been set at $2 million.
