WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Two men have been charged in the fatal shooting of a man last week in east Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1UDrJSc ) that 35-year-old Macy Foard and 23-year-old Alexzander Rye are charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 8 death of 42-year-old Dejuan Harris.

They are accused of going to a house to rob the two people who live at the address, but instead shooting Harris after he answered a knock at the door.

Police say the people that the pair was allegedly after weren’t home. An anonymous 911 caller found Harris’ body about 24 hours later.

Rye also faces charges for methamphetamine possession and criminal possession of a firearm in Harris’ killing.

The men remain in Sedgwick County Jail in lieu of $550,000 in bonds in the two cases. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys.
