SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A man in a Missouri prison is charged with killing a couple from Greene County on April 25, 2011. Jose Huckleberry is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and one count of burglary for the deaths of Helen and Don Willinghams in their home just west of Springfield.
Sheriff Jim Arnott says Huckleberry told investigators that he intended to burglarize the Willinghams' home but did not intend to kill them.
Huckleberry, 25, is in prison for violating his probation on a burglary charge.
Arnott and Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson both said the investigation continues and it's possible others will be charged.
