HARRISONVILLE, MO – A man charged in the disappearance of two women will be in court next week.
The results of a mental exam were recently filed in court records pertaining to the status of Kylr Yust, 31. Yust is charged with two counts of first degree murder after the remains of Kara Kopetsky and Jessica Runions were found together in Cass County. Kopetsky went missing in 2007 after filing a restraining order against Yust. Runions disappeared in 2016, before authorities found her burnt vehicle.
A status hearing is scheduled for September 3 to determine Yust’s mental fitness to stand trial.
