Three Men Charged With Double-Murder in St. Paul
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have charged three men in the killings of two men at a St. Paul motel in a case that police say involves methamphetamine dealers.
Ramsey County prosecutors have charged 31-year-old Cass Cordel Oneal and 30-year-old Ronald Lee Conway with second-degree murder, and 30-year-old Eric John Benner with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
Thirty-year-old Nicholas Bennett Tousley and 23-year-old Dominique Charles Moss were shot Tuesday night at the Midway Motel.
The criminal complaint indicates the shootings happened because Conway believed Tousley had stolen $1,000 from him.
All three appeared in court Friday. Bail ranges as high as $1.5 million for Oneal, the alleged shooter. Online court records don't list attorneys for Oneal and Conway, while the public defender listed for Benner did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
