KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Two Kansas City men have been charged with the Oct. 31, 2014, murder of Dionte Greene, found inside a car parked near 69th and Bellefontaine, dead from a gunshot to his head.
Travone Shaw, 19, and Antonio Golston, 21 face charges of second-degree murder, robbery, and two counts of armed criminal action.
Greene's mom, Coshelle, is still shaken by her son's murder.
"I cry. I cry each and every night about my baby. That was Dionte. That was my baby. My first-born," she said.
Police found Greene’s body in the car and his cell phone was also inside. Witnesses told police that prior to the shooting, Greene had been contacting multiple individuals on Facebook about meeting.
When investigators searched Greene's Facebook account, they found several messages between him and a person detectives were able to identify as Travone Shaw. They also found Shaw's fingerprints in Greene’s vehicle, they say. When they questioned him, Shaw told detectives that Antonio Golston told him he was going to rob someone. He told Shaw to sit in the front seat, and when the victim arrived, Golston got into the back seat, Shaw stated.
They went to a gas station and withdrew cash, then drove to a residence on Bellefontaine. Golston pulled a handgun, pointed it at the victim and shot Greene one time, Shaw stated.
Since the murder, Coshelle says she can't stop thinking about why someone would kill her son, adding that she needs answers from the accused men.
"Their mothers have lost as well; neither party is winning here. I forgive them, but I still want to look in your face, and I still need answers from you," she said. "I want you to know who you took away from me, was more precious than anything in the world."
Prosecutors have requested a bond of $250,000 cash on each defendant, who were charged over the weekend and taken into custody.
