A man and a woman face murder charges among others in connection with the June 20 killing of 49-year-old Shawn Parker in northwest Charlotte.

Cordero Lamont McCoy, 23, and Keaundra LaShawn Strong, 32, were arrested Friday without incident and charged with murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and first-degree burglary. They were questioned at CMPD headquarters and then jailed at the Mecklenburg County Jail.

He’d been shot sometime before 3:30 that morning and was pronounced dead at the scene by Medic.
