KC man accused in 2 deaths during drug deal

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - An 18-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the shooting deaths of two people in what authorities say started out as a drug deal.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker on Wednesday announced two second-degree murder and two armed criminal action charges against Glenn Pulluaim II in the Jan. 28 slayings of Brian Cunningham and Therman Lacy III.

Prosecutors say Pulluaim, another man and a woman arranged to buy marijuana from two people in a car. Pulluaim is accused shooting one of the victims, while witnesses say the other man shot both victims.

A spokesman for the prosecutor's office says Pulluaim hasn't appeared in court and it didn't appear that he had obtained an attorney as of late Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors have requested a $500,000 cash bond.
