PRESS RELEASE
09/14/15
GRAVES KING SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THE HOME INVASION AND DEATH OF JAMES DUNHAM IN JUNE 2013
Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney, announces that Graves King of St. Robert pled guilty on Friday in Scott County, on a change of venue from Pulaski County, to the charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Receiving Stolen Property for his role in the home invasion and death of James Dunham in St. Robert in June 2013. Mr. King was originally the prime suspect in the case, but evidence discovered during the investigation and prosecution now indicates that another suspect was the primary perpetrator. 
 
Judge David Dolan of Scott County sentenced Mr. King to fifteen years in the Department of Corrections on the Burglary in the First Degree charge and five years in the Department of Corrections on the Receiving Stolen Property charge, to run consecutive with one another.  In addition to those sentences, Mr. King is also serving a number of other sentences from other unrelated cases, which are:
 
a.       Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute from Phelps County, on a change of venue from Pulaski County-Twelve years in the Department of Corrections.
b.      Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Correctional Facility from Phelps County on a change of venue from Pulaski County-Seven years in the Department of Corrections.
c.       Unlawful Use of Methamphetamine Drug Paraphernalia from Phelps County on a change of venue from Pulaski County-Four years in the Department of Corrections.
d.      Possession of a Controlled Substance from Greene County-Five years in the Department of Corrections.
e.       Possession of a Controlled Substance from Greene County-Five years in the Department of Corrections.
f.       Possession of a Controlled Substance from Greene County-Five years in the Department of Corrections.
g.      Possession of a Controlled Substance from Christian County-Five years in the Department of Corrections.
h.      Possession of a Firearm or Ammunition by a Felon from the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri-Seventy five months in the US Bureau of Prisons.
 
Charles Shattuck-Knabel remains charged with Murder in the Second Degree, along with a number of other charges related to the home invasion and death of James Dunham.  Mr. Shattuck-Knabel withdrew his previous pleas of guilty and his case has now been transferred on a change of venue to Morgan County for trial.
 
“I am pleased to bring resolution to his case and grateful that Mr. King is going to spend the vast majority of the rest of his life in prison, where he belongs.  This plea and sentence will now allow us to focus on the primary suspect in this case,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.  “I want to commend the work that the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department did investigating this case, especially Detective Doug Renno, the lead investigator in this case.”
 
This case was investigated by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.  This case was prosecuted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman and Assistant Attorney General Josh Harrel.
The Prosecutor’s Office reminds everyone that the charges against Mr. Shattuck-Knabel are merely an accusation and he remains innocent until proven guilty.

Thank you so very much Kevin. Jim was a close friend of mine. I'm so glad one of those monsters has been put away.
