Murder Charges

A 31-year-old Missouri man has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 2 sisters from northwest Missouri.

Platte County Attorney Eric Zahnd says Clifford D. Miller of Trimble, Mo., was charged Monday in the deaths of 19-year-old Britny Haarup and 22-year-old Ashley Key on Friday. The women's bodies were found late Sunday near Trimble in Clinton County. They were reported missing Friday after Haarup's fiance, Matt Meyers, found his 6- and 18-month old daughters alone at the home they shared in Edgerton, about 35 miles north of Kansas City. A truck missing from the home was found parked on a gravel road Saturday, prompting authorities to search the surrounding fields.
