Authorities say the 26-year-old son of the victim’s good friend helped plan the gunpoint robbery of a 67-year-old woman at her house in Pierce County.
Prosecutors charged Bobby Ray McKinney on Friday with one count each of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and unlawful imprisonment. He pleaded not guilty.
Charging documents say that McKinney told two of his buddies how to get into Gabriele Senn’s house and gave them an inventory of property to steal, including jewelry.
