KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV/AP) -- Two men have been charged in an 11-year-old home invasion killing.

Prosecutors announced Monday that 29-year-old Corey Mason, of Kansas City, KS, has been charged with first-degree murder and 35-year-old Daniel Kidwell, of Kansas City, MO, with second-degree murder in the death of Jeff Rogers. The 25-year-old victim called 911 after the April 2008 home invasion.

Rogers was suffering from gunshot and knife wounds when officers arrived and died later at a hospital. Police said at the time that four or five men had broken into his home and beat, shot and stabbed him.

The filing of charges comes shortly after officials asked for tips in the cold case.
