Charges have been filed against a fifth person in connection to an Independence home invasion that left three people dead.  Carlos Zambrano, Jr., 27, of Kansas City faces three counts first-degree murder and six other felony counts in the shooting deaths of Maria Hernandez, 48, Antonio Hernandez, 20, and Tomas Dominguez on Nov. 16. Police said the suspects targeted the home near Pope and Angus for drugs.  According to court documents, Zambrano had been released from prison just a week and a half prior to the shootings.  Antonio Cervantes III, 32, Kevin M. Finley, 33, Raul Soto, 22, and Bobbi Jo Phillips, 37, were charged last week with nine felonies each, including three counts of first-degree murder, four counts of armed criminal action and assault.  A Jackson County Judge denied bond for Cervantes, Finley, Soto, and Phillips.  All five suspects are expected to return to court on Dec. 12.
