SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have charged three people in the death of a 66-year-old Kansas man reported missing in southeast Missouri.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports (https://j.mp/29jW0rF ) Larry Weaver of Pittsburg, Kansas, was reported missing late last month after he failed to check out of a Sikeston motel. Authorities discovered his motorcycle was also missing, but his wallet and other belongings were left in his motel room. His body was found Saturday in a cotton field in New Madrid County.

Records show 40-year-old Elsie M. Coleman Hamilton and 49-year-old Ronnie Carl Robinson Sr., both of North Little Rock, Arkansas, and 35-year-old Larenzle Coleman, of Oakfield, Tennessee, are charged with first-degree murder in Weaver’s death.

An autopsy shows Weaver had been tied up and beaten.

Online court records don’t list lawyers for the defendants.
