CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - A third person has been charged with conspiracy in the slaying of a Waterloo man during a robbery attempt.

Marquas Gafeney, 21, of Waterloo was arrested Sunday and remained in custody Monday. Black Hawk County court records say he’s charged with conspiracy to commit a forcible felony. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

Gafeney and two other men are accused in the Dec. 4 shooting death of Grant Saul, 24. The two others are charged with the same crime. They are James Wright-Buls, 21, and Keyon Roby, 18. The court records don’t list attorneys for them either.

Officers were sent to the apartment to check a gunfire report. They found a man inside with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene and later identified as Saul.

The court records say Saul had drawn a gun and was shot by one of the three men who’d forced their way into the apartment. The records say witnesses identified Roby as the man who shot Saul. Roby has denied any involvement or knowledge of the crimes, the records say.
