Father & son behind bars in Dade County murder


A father and son are behind bars, accused of killing a Greenfield man.

Dade County deputies were called to the scene at Son’s Creek northeast of Lockwood on Tuesday.

They found the body of Devin Matthew Hunt in the water near his bicycle.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol was called in to assist – learning that Hunt and his girlfriend Connie Trent had recently broken up.

They say Hunt had threatened to tell her doctor that she was illegally selling her prescription medication.

A probable cause affidavit alleges her brother Willis Trent and father Calvin Trent then tracked down Hunt Monday as he biked to work.

Court documents say each of the two men confessed to shooting Hunt and dumping his body in the creek.

They are both accused of first degree murder and armed criminal action.
