A Kansas City man and an Independence woman have been charged in the shooting of Steven L. Ragsdale Jr.

Ragsdale was shot outside an apartment complex Dec. 30, 2017. 

David K. Racy, 25, and Valincia Alexander, 24, have both been charged with second-degree felony murder and armed criminal action charges. 

Court records state Alexander requested via social media to purchase marijuana from Racy. She told police her and Ragsdale intended to steal some of Racy's marijuana. 

Records say he came to the home and she offered a fake $100 bill. 

Ragsdale was outside the apartment complex when Alexander handed Racy the fake money, grabbed a bag of marijuana and took off running.

Police on scene discovered Ragsdale suffering from gunshots. He died at the scene. 

A $200,000 bond has been requested for both charged parties.
