Court documents reveal a strained relationship between two half-brothers that left one dead and the other behind bars on suspicion of murder.

Ryan R. Ames, 22, was arrested Tuesday night on charges of second-degree murder after he allegedly shot and killed his half-brother, David McCarthy, outside the Ames home on the 12000 block of East 31st Avenue. Spokane County sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene after Ames called 911.

Ames told deputies that his step-brother had assaulted his mother, father and brother multiple times between 7 and 13 years ago, according to court documents.

Court records do not indicate that McCarthy had a history of domestic violence. Ames does not have a violent criminal record. The men’s mother declined to comment.

Killed – Aaron James Moran (Shakopee, MN)

Aaron James Moran1

SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man who was fatally shot in Shakopee.

The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the victim Thursday as 32-year-old Aaron James Moran of Shakopee.

The medical examiner says Moran died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Officers were dispatched to a house on a report of an armed robbery about 7 p.m. Tuesday. When officers arrived, they found Moran suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anthony James Cox, who was found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder Monday night in the shooting death of a Shakopee man last year, was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without parole by District Court Judge Christian Wilton.

Cox, 22, of Minneapolis, was also found guilty of first-degree aggravated robbery in the slaying of 32-year-old Aaron James Moran of Shakopee on Oct. 22.

A grand jury indicted Cox on Dec. 5 on three charges of first-degree murder, and they relate to murder with premeditation and two counts of murder with intent while committing a felony. He was also charged with first-degree aggravated robbery.

Another man charged in the case, Brooks Ellery Kurr, 36, of Annandale, pleaded guilty on Dec. 2 to aiding and abetting unintentional second-degree murder. Kurr, who testified for the prosecution, has not been sentenced.

According to court documents, authorities said that Moran had a negative relationship with Kurr, a former co-worker. The two had worked at the limousine shuttle service Affordable Town Car.

Cox shot Moran four times on the evening of Oct. 22 at Moran’s home on Prairie Street in Shakopee. Moran’s 15-year-old nephew was home at the time and witnessed the shooting. The nephew told police that the shooter took property from the home, which was stored in a backpack, before fleeing the scene.

Police located Cox and Kurr near Shakopee on Oct. 26 using a device that tracks cell phones. Police were soon told that a suspicious black male was seen in the alley between Seventh and Eighth avenues, just blocks from Moran’s house. Police arrested Cox, who was allegedly in possession of the backpack stolen from Moran’s residence, which contained a cell phone and ammunition.

Kurr, 36, was a driver for a limo service in Shakopee and believed that Moran, a dispatcher at Affordable Town Car Service, was keeping limo runs from him, according to the criminal complaint. He knew the victim was keeping a log that detailed when he was late for work and when he didn’t answer his phone, and he blamed Moran when he was fired after a drug test showed methamphetamine use, the complaint said.

It said Kurr even staked out Moran’s house to see if the victim was going on runs that Kurr thought should be his.
