INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Prosecutors have charged a third person in the death of a Kansas City Symphony musician who was shot last week.

Sylvon Sese, 20, of Independence, was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the slaying of Steven Peters, 51. The bass player's body was found last week at his duplex in this Kansas City suburb.

Two other people -- Richard D. Jones and Michael A. Jones, both 21 and from Kansas City -- were charged Friday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. Both men, who are not related, have pleaded not guilty.

Authorities believe Peters was shot while four men tried to burglarize his duplex.
