SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Three men face charges in connection with the killing of a man at a mobile home park in Springfield, Missouri.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that 28-year-old Dustin Stacey, 27-year-old Shane Stamm and 34-year-old Jerry Earls Jr. are charged with felony murder and other crimes in the Feb. 1 death of 38-year-old Kenneth Clark.

Earls and Stacey are in custody, and authorities say a warrant has been issued for the arreset of Stamm.

Prosecutors say in court documents the killing was “retaliatory” and probably linked to a dispute over drug debts or competing drug distribution networks.

Witnesses told police that three suspects forced their way into a mobile home and fatally shot Clark before fleeing.
