Two Charged In 1997 Murder

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2015

Two 34-year-old men have been accused in the death of a 33-year-old Kansas City, Kansas, woman 17 years ago.

Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome filed charges Thursday against Jason Lanell Rucker of Kansas City, Kansas, and Torry Mashone Johnson, currently incarcerated in the Crossroads Correctional Center in Cameron, Missouri.

The two were charged in the Juvenile Division of Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree murder in the October 1997 death of Vicky Ernst inside her home.

Rucker was 17 and Johnson was 16 at the time of Ernst’s death. Gorman says the charges came after police followed up on newly developed leads.

Johnson is being held in Wyandotte County jail on $1 million bond.
