OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Johnson County authorities say two men have been charged in the 2010 death of a Kansas liquor store owner.

One of the suspects in the May 2010 killing of 61-year-old Gerry Grovenburg of Spring Hill is still on the loose. Authorities say they are looking for 30-year-old Bruce Julius Ashley Jr., who was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in Grovenburg’s death.

The second suspect, 33-year-old Larry Marshall Jr., is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon on charges of first-degree murder and attempted robbery.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/11myFoD ) he was arrested May 17 in Arkansas and returned to Johnson County Friday, where is being held on $1 million bond.

Grovenburg was killed in a Shawnee liquor store he had operated for 35 years.
