Jackson County prosecutors charged four men in connection with the death of Steven Bertling, the Independence man killed while playing basketball in a church parking lot with friends.
Prosecutors charged 20-year-old Joseph P. Delgado and 21-year-old Justin M. Trotter with second-degree murder and first-degree assault.
