MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Two men have been charged in the death of a 21-year-old Northwest Missouri State University student.
The Nodaway County prosecutor filed charges of second-degree murder and first-degree assault Friday against 23-year-old Tony Overlin and 31-year-old Kevin Dell Mooney, both of Bethany.
They were jailed on $100,000 bond, and their arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday. No attorney is listed for them in online court records.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that the suspects were asked to leave a Maryville bar after an altercation with Tomarken Smith of St. Louis.

Smith died of head injuries early Friday at a hospital. He was a senior pre-professional studies major with a minor in coaching.
