Man from Georgia Arrested in Connection with Double-Murder in Sikeston

A man from Georgia is in police custody after allegedly killing two people in Sikeston.

Atlanta Police say 33-year-old Cornelius David was arrested on two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm.

Investigators say he shot and killed Kiara Haynes and Breana Conner on Sunday, January 22.

Haynes was pronounced dead at the scene, while Conner was transported to a local hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries.

David is being held in an Atlanta jail without bond while his extradition back to Missouri is being arranged.
