SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Court documents reveal names of two people considered suspects in the deaths of a couple from rural Greene County last year.
U.S. Marshals arrested Tony and Windy Friend on Wednesday at the home where they lived at 3155 W. Brower St., lot #10, in Springfield.
Both Tony Friend, 44, and Windy Friend, 31, were charged in Greene County associate circuit court with possessing methamphetamine. Tony Friend was also charged in U.S. District Court with being a felon in possession of a weapon. He is previously convicted for unlawful use of a weapon and domestic assault.
In a motion in federal court to hold the Friends in jail, a detective said Tony and Windy Friend are "targets" in the investigation of the homicides of Rebecca and Russell Porter, who disappeared from their home northeast of Willard in April 2011. The investigator wrote that Tony Friend threatened a deputy and the detective's family, as well as and federal and state judicial centers.
