 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A DWI has led to a Missouri man’s arrest in a 23-year-old killing. The Kansas City Star  reported that prosecutors announced Friday that 43-year-oldGuy Shannon Jr. of Odessa faces charges of first-degree murder and forcible rape. Prosecutors allege he strangled and assaulted 20-year-old Marcia Lynn Davis of Independence in March 1989. Shannon became a suspect after his 2010 DWI conviction meant he became a felon and was required to give a DNA sample. That sample eventually tied him to Davis’ killing. She was last was seen leaving the Jackson County Jail where she had visited a friend. Kansas City police Sgt. Jeffrey L. Downing says Shannon was absent without leave from the Marine Corps when Davis died.

No attorney is listed for Shannon in online court records.
