LENEXA, Kan. - A 27-year-old man charged in the deaths of a man and his stepson in suburban Kansas City told police he killed them after they kidnapped him.
Alexander W. Brune of Lenexa has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the July 9 deaths of 47-year-old Brian Baskind and 79-year-old Clifford Preston. The men were found stabbed inside a Lenexa home.
Prosecutors say Brune, who's jailed on $2 million bond, killed the men during a burglary and attempted robbery.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1rZboMt) that court documents released this week show Brune called police that night after being shot in the abdomen. He told police the men kidnapped him and drove him to a house, and that he stabbed both men while trying to escape.
