Man charged in 2 deaths in separate shootings

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A 19-year-old man is charged with killing two people and wounding two others in separate shootings in Kansas City, Kan.

Wyandotte County prosecutors charged Eric D. Clay Wednesday with two counts of first-degree murder in the March 4 shooting deaths of 16-year-old Renesha Jones and 21-year-old Keith E. Barrett.

Barrett, of Kansas City, Kan., and Jones, of Kansas City, Mo., were killed at an apartment in a shooting that also wounded a baby.
