Joey A. Marcak, 31, of West Plains was charged with two counts of first degree murder, among other felonies, in connection with the May 5 double homicide of Frankie Ziegler and Richard Kuntz. He has remained in custody on a $1 million bond.
On May 27, the State of Missouri filed a notice of intent to seek the death penalty against Marcak. Subsequently, the accused no longer has a bond. He will remain in custody unless his bond is amended a second time.
Marcak is scheduled for a preliminary hearing alongside his alleged accomplices, Kyla Croney and Levi Gunter, on July 7. All three will appear before the Hon. R. David. Ray in the Howell County Courthouse.
