More arrests made in Cedar Rapids homicide


CEDAR RAPIDS — Three more suspects have been charged in connection with the January shooting death of 18-year-old AnnaElise Edgeton.

Allen W. Miller, 18, of Marion, and two unnamed juveniles — a 16-year-old female and 17-year-old male — also were involved in the Jan. 13 homicide at the Shamrock Apartments, 316 Jacolyn Drive SW, according to Cedar Rapids police.

Miller and the two juveniles each have been charged with conspiracy to commit a forcible felony and accessory after the fact.

Miller was arrested at the Linn County Courthouse and both juveniles - who will go through the juvenile court system - were arrested at the Cedar Rapids Police Department.

Earlier this month, Kyler Jacob Junkins, 19, of Marion, was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary. He is accused of breaking into Edgeton’s apartment and shooting her. Junkins’ bond was set at $2 million.

First-degree murder is a Class A felony punishable by an automatic life sentence. Conspiracy to commit a forcible felony for first-degree burglary is a Class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years. Accessory after the fact, an aggravated misdemeanor, is punishable by up to two years.

Edgeton was a 2015 graduate of Metro High School and a certified nursing assistant, according to her obituary. She married John Edgeton last August.
