UPDATED: Second Suspect In Kirkwood Homicide In Custody

KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOX) – Kirkwood police say the second man being sought in connection with Tuesday’s homicide at a motel in the 8700 block of Watson in Marlborough has been arrested.

Nicholas “Nick” Lunceford was captured after an “intensive manhunt”, according to detectives with the Kirkwood Police Department.

Lunceford and Keenan Miller were being sought in connection with Tuesday’s murder of Brandon Richards during a drug deal gone bad.

While Kirkwood police continue to look for the man they say gunned down an 18 year old in a home on Pleasant Court, prosecutors have charged a second man in connection with that homicide.

Keenan Miller of Oakland Missouri is charged with Second Degree Murder in the death of Brandon Richards. Officials say Miller was delivering marijuana to the home on Pleasant Court. He is jailed on 100-thousand dollars cash only bond.

It was at that same home where police believe Richards was shot and killed by Nicholas Lunceford. Lunceford is still being sought and is considered armed and dangerous.
