KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An 18-year-old Kansas City woman faces attempted first degree murder charges and an 18-year-old Kansas City man faces additional charges in connection to a series of crimes Thursday in Lenexa.

The Johnson County District Attorney’s office Friday charged Donnellya Amrine with one count of attempted first degree murder, one count of attempted aggravated robbery and shooting at an occupied vehicle.

Prosecutors also charged Malachi Walton with felony defacing of a firearm, misdemeanor marijuana possession and carrying a concealed weapon in connection to the Dec. 9 incident.

According to Lenexa police, around 11 p.m. Thursday, a man was sitting in his car in the parking lot of a hotel in the 9600 block of Rosehill Road when two suspects, later identified as Amrine and Walton, allegedly approached the car and attempted to force the victim out.

A police spokesperson said one of the suspects allegedly fired multiple shots toward the victim, though the victim was not struck.

The two suspects were located a short distance away shortly after the incident.

The pair were taken into custody overnight and booked into the Johnson County Adult Detention Center. Prosecutors have requested a $500,000 bond for Amrine and a $250,000 bond for Walton.
