A Kansas City man and woman face multiple felony counts in connection with the June 9, 2017, fatal shooting of Rebecca Murphy and the wounding of a man in Lone Jack, MO, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
Danielle L. Bell (dob: 9/28/1997) and Raphael R. Corrioso (dob: 10/23/1993), both of Kansas City, each face Murder 2nd Degree, Assault 1st Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.*
According to court records filed today, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene of a reported shooting after a man flagged down a passing motorist. The man said he had been shot. He directed them to a building where they found the homicide victim, Rebecca Murphy. She had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies tracked Bell to a residence in Kansas City and stopped her, along with Corrioso and another suspect. Corrioso told deputies they confronted the victims about a plan to rob Bell. The assault victim told deputies that Murphy was fighting with Bell, when they were placed inside a vehicle. They were ordered into a residence in eastern Jackson County and told to undress and one of the men with Bell began to shoot. The assault victim ran outside and waited for several minutes before he flagged down a motorist.
Prosecutors requested bonds of $150,000 for each defendant. The case remains under investigation and more charges may be possible.
