MILLER COUNTY, Mo. — Charges have been filed in a Miller County homicide investigation that began after a body was found in June 2018.
Investigators say the body of 34-year-old Tyler Worthington, of North San Juan, Ca., was found in a wooded area on June 11.
On Monday, Joseph McKenna, of Chicago, Ill. was arrested in Illinois on a charge of second degree murder.
Court documents say Worthington and McKenna were business associates in a large marijuana growing and distribution operation.
The men were believed to be in Missouri on a drug transaction at the time of the shooting. McKenna is awaiting extradition from Illinois.
