GRANDVIEW, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City-area man on probation for a 2010 killing has been charged in a separate slaying.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/ZFWzlv ) 20-year-old Kelly Lewis of Grandview was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of armed criminal action. Prosecutors say Lewis fatally shot 23-year-old Dominique Johnson on Sept. 20.

Grandview police found Johnson’s body in a parking lot. Witnesses say several people were arguing before Lewis shot Johnson.

Lewis was placed on probation in 2012 after pleading guilty to the voluntary manslaughter of Helen Ragan. Authorities say Ragan and her husband were at home watching a basketball game when she was fatally struck by a stray bullet from Lewis.

Online jail records didn’t list bond or an attorney for Lewis.
