    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A retired police officer is charged with murdering two women and raping a third after DNA evidence collected after a sexual assault last week linked him to all three attacks, prosecutors said Friday.

    Jeffrey Dean Moreland, 52, of Harrisonville, has been charged in Cass County with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Cara Jo Roberts, 30, who was shot in the head on Nov. 5, 2008, in her Harrisonville home. He is also charged with first-degree murder in Jackson County for the slaying of Nina Whitney, 75, of south Kansas City, who was stabbed and strangled in her home on Oct. 29, 2010

    Former cop charged in connection with Roberts murder

    HARRISONVILLE, MO (KCTV) - A 52-year-old former Grandview police officer has been charged in connection with the murder of a young Harrisonville mother, authorities announced Friday morning.

    Jeffrey Dean Moreland has been charged in connection with the 2008 murder of Cara Jo Roberts.

    Moreland is also accused in the 2010 murder of Nina Whitney, 75. She was found dead in her Kansas City home last fall.

    Official say they could charge Moreland with the two woman's murders because of a match of DNA taken from a Harrisonville woman. That woman told authorities that she was raped last week by Moreland, according to court documents.

    Moreland was rolled into Cass County Court Friday afternoon in a wheel chair to face a judge for the first time. The judge entered a not guilty plea for Moreland because Moreland does not have an attorney yet. Moreland was in court on the first-degree murder charge in connection with Roberts' death.

    Roberts' husband, Jeff, said Friday that he was overwhelmed to learn about Moreland's arrest.

    KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - Paige Hueser longed to discover who brutally beat and strangled to death her mother in her south Kansas City home last fall.

    Hueser just never imagined that eight months later that her former boyfriend, Jeffrey Dean Moreland, would be accused of killing her 75-year-old mother and a second woman as well as raping a third woman.

    Emotions collide as Jeff Roberts comes to terms with the arrest of his wife’s suspected killer, Jeffrey Moreland

    The emotional collision taking place inside the soul of Jeff Roberts was more than evident throughout the day Friday.

    Less than 24 hours after learning about the break he had hoped for, prayed for, and surely at times lost hope would ever arrive, the widower and father stood at a podium on the 11th floor of the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City. He had eagerly stepped forward to field a question from the assembled media on behalf of the family following the arrest of a suspect in the 2008 murder of his wife, Cara Jo. But his voice nearly betrayed him as his eyes, for the millionth time in the past two years and eight months, began to tear.

    Glad the woman who was raped and survived was able to give a good description and the ex saw the sketch, or he'd still be out there raping and murdering people! This happens so often (think Anthony Sowell)...it's such a tragedy that it takes someone being raped to solve previous crimes.

    I bet he has killed more women than this. LE should really look over his entire life and location.
