KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A sixth defendant now faces charges in connection to the May 2010 murder of Kansas City businessman Michael Tutera, prosecutors announced on Thursday.

Robert L. Frazier, 23, is charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and burglary charges. He is in custody at the Jackson County Jail, and is being held in lieu of $150,000/10 percent bond.

Prosecutors say that Frazier was with the group of men who shot and killed Tutera early on the morning of May 27, 2010. He was identified as being in one of the cars that the defendants took to Tutera`s home.

Frazier is the sixth defendant charged in the Tutera murder. In May, Troy Davis, 24, pleaded guilty to the murder in exchange for two consecutive 10-years sentences. Prosecutors say that Davis also agreed to testify in the case. Earlier, two other men, brothers Matthew and Joseph Hendrix, pleaded guilty.

Two others, Joel Thomas and Michael Dear are awaiting trial.
