DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have arrested two suspects in Des Moines’ first homicide of 2018.

On Wednesday police charged 45-year-old William Burton III and 36-year-old Crystal Purdy. Court records don’t list the names of attorneys who could comment for the two.

Police say officers and medics sent around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a shooting found the body of Cory Channon. He’d been shot in the chest.

Police have not explained the relationship — if any — between Channon and the two suspects.
