  • Troy Davis has been charged in the homicide of Michael J. Tutera.

A second man has been charged in the shooting death of Kansas City businessman Michael J. Tutera.

Jackson County prosecutors charged 22-year-old Troy J. Davis with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and burglary, according to The Kansas City Star.

On Friday, prosecutors filed similar charges against 18-year-old Matthew T. Hendrix, a University of Missouri-Kansas City student.

Court records say Tutera called 911 late

Wednesday night and reported catching Hendrix in his house. Tutera

kicked Hendrix out. Tutera told the dispatcher that Hendrix was

"casing the properties" and requested officers check out the area.

Wednesday.

​KCPD

officers found Tutera's body on the floor of his garage at 5300 Sunset

Place.

In an interview with detectives, Hendrix said he'd been at

Tutera's

home earlier that night and was told to leave. Hendrix claimed that he

later met up with a group of men -- some with guns -- who planned to rob

Tutera.

Hendrix claimed that he was in the street outside of Tutera's

driveway when

he heard two shots. He fled the scene and met the men at

Loose Park.
