CALWOOD, Mo. (AP) - Three people have been charged with killing another man in a meth deal that went bad.

The Columbia Missourian reports that Justin Witt, Joey Morris and William Schoening-Scoggins are jailed without bond on several charges, including second-degree murder, in the death of 29-year-old Nathan Pritchett Jr. His body was found Tuesday near the unincorporated Callaway County town of Calwood, which is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of Columbia.

Charging documents say Schoening-Scoggins told law enforcement that he and Morris intended to get methamphetamine from Pritchett. Before meeting Pritchett, Schoening-Scoggins and Morris met with Witt to get counterfeit money to acquire the methamphetamine from Pritchett.

But Pritchett figured out the money was fake. Charging documents say Witt then shot Pritchett with a 20-gauge shotgun.
