3 charged in connection with armed robbery at Kennett

Dunklin County Prosecutors have charged three individuals in connection with an armed robbery that occurred in Kennett on March 22, in which two young women allegedly lured a victim in, while a male suspect assaulted the victim before taking his personal belongings then accidentally left something of his own behind.

It was a personal cell phone left at the scene by Devontae Rivers, 18, of Blytheville, Ark., that connected him to the crimes in which he has been charged with four felony counts including robbery in the first degree, assault in the first degree, armed criminal action and burglary.

According to reports, Rivers mistakenly left his phone at the scene of the crime, upon fleeing with his two accomplices, Kiyunna S. Thompson, 18, of Kennett, Mo., and Shaquilla S. Davis, 18, of Kennett, Mo.

Both Thompson and Davis were arrested for their roles in the event. Hayti police officers were able to locate Thompson in their area, while Davis was found in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Court records indicate that Thompson and Davis have each been separately charged with two felony counts of armed criminal action, one felony count of assault in the first degree, a felony count of robbery in the first degree and burglary in the first degree, also a felony.

Thompson and Davis have been issued a $50,000 bond, while Rivers' bond has been set at $200,000 cash-only.

Thompson is being represented in court by a public defender and expected to appear for a preliminary hearing on May 6, 2011. Davis' court date has yet to be set, and records do not indicate a legal representation status. Legal representation is not listed for Rivers either, as of Wednesday morning. A court date has also yet to be determined for Rivers.

Dunklin County Circuit Court Judge John C. Spielman will hear the case.
