KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One person was charged with murder this week in connection with a deadly home invasion that occurred more than a decade ago.

Daniel Kidwell, 35, was charged with one count of second-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Jeff Rogers in Kansas City, Kansas, according to the Wyandotte County Prosecutor’s Office.

Two other people were arrested and charged in connection with the deadly cold case, according to a tweet from KCK Police Chief Terry Ziegler. It's unclear what charges those two individuals face.

KCK police issued a news release earlier this week asking for any information about the home invasion and homicide, which occurred on April 9, 2008, in the 8400 block of Tauromee Avenue.

Police previously said that Rogers, 25, called 911 from his home to report he had been shot and stabbed.

When officers arrived, they found Rogers suffering from several gunshot and knife wounds. He told police that four or five men had broken into his home then beaten, shot and stabbed him.

Rogers died a short time later at the hospital.

Kidwell’s bond was set at $750,000.
