(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A 19-year-old man has been charged with Murder in the Second Degree in reference to the death of 21-year-old Jaiden Drimmel.

According to the Buchanan County Prosecuting Attorney Ron Holiday, Dylan James Grippando is charged with Murder in the Second Degree by causing the death of Drimmel by shooting him with a firearm.

More rain fell across the area Saturday night and the threat for rain will continue throughout the day on Sunday but the good news is that most will stay dry. Throughout the day, expect more clouds than sun but we could see a little more sunshine during the afternoon. An advancing cold front could bring a stray shower during the afternoon. Highs today are going to be in the 80s.
