2 men at site of student’s slaying charged with drug dealing
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Two 19-year-olds have been charged with dealing drugs in the Missouri neighborhood where a college student from Chicago was gunned down.
The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that DeAngelo Frazier Jr. and Michael Bouchee were charged Wednesday with delivery of a controlled substance. Neither man has an attorney. The charge stems from the search of a Jefferson City house after shell casings were found outside following last week’s shooting of 23-year-old D’Angelo Bratton-Bland. He was the student body president at Lincoln University.
The search yielded marijuana and electronic scales.
Charging documents say both men were at the residence when Bratton-Bland was shot, apparently while walking in the area. Authorities said Bratton-Bland was a victim who did nothing to contribute to his fatal shooting. No one has been charged in Bratton-Bland’s death.
