Two charged in
November murder of Pleasant Hill man
...On February 3 Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced a Jackson County man and woman have been charged in the November 27, 2016 burglary and attack of John Rector, 84, who later died.
...Since November, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating the case. In December the Sheriff’s Office reached out to the public for assistance with their only clue, surveillance photos of a white Kia Sorrento SUV spotted in the area.
...Through tips received during the investigation, Mary P. Couts, 32, of Blue Springs, and John Lane, 17, of Kansas City were each arrested in conjunction with the burglary and murder. They each face first-degree burglary, second-degree murder, and armed criminal action charges.
...According to court records, the couple were at Rector’s home to burglarize it. When interviewed separately they each blamed the other for the blow to the head that killed Rector.
...Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched November 27 to the residence in the 28000 block of East County Line Road on a medical call. A neighbor who had spoken to Rector a couple hours earlier, stopped by and found Rector lying on the ground.
...When deputies arrived, they found Rector lying in his back yard with a severe trauma to the head. Rector was taken by ambulance to the hospital but never regained consciousness.
...He died from his injuries on December 8.
