Murder in Hollister

Charges are now filed in a weekend murder in Hollister.

A spokesperson for the Hollister Police Department says 53-year-old John Ingram was found dead in his mobile home early Saturday morning. Prosecutors say the autopsy shows Ingram died of a heart attack brought on by a severe beating.

Officers later arrested and charged two men in the murder, 25-year-old Joshua Brokaw of Branson and 27-year-old Daniel Pease of Hollister. Both are charged with second degree murder.

Our condolences to the family.
