KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Jackson County Prosecutors Office charged Calah Johnson Friday afternoon for the deadly shooting of a woman killed by a stray bullet back in 2009.
Deanna Lieber's family waited four years to hear the news.
On Friday, the family released a statement read by her father, Melvin Wackerle.
"Someone fired a gun in this case with intent to do harm to someone," Wackerle said. "Deanna was unfortunately in the path of that bullet."
Johnson is already in jail on an unrelated crime. Now, he is charged with second-degree murder.
Four years ago, a stray bullet struck and killed Lieber while driving near Starlight Theater with her daughter and mother on July 17, 2009. The family has been holding out hope for the last four years police would find the shooter.
Johnson's bond has been set at $500,000. His first court appearance is set for November 18.
