KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Court documents allege a Kansas couple charged in a Missouri killing helped forge a legal document used to deny the victim life-sustaining medical treatment.

The indictments against 42-year-old Desre Dory and his 43-year-old wife, Stacey, of Shawnee, Kan., were made public Monday. Their release came after the couple was extradited to Boone County and pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and forgery.

William Van Note, 67, of Liberty, was shot in October 2010 along with his partner, 59-year-old Sharon Dickson, at their Lake of the Ozarks vacation home.

Dickson died at the home in the Camden County town of Sunrise Beach. Van Note died four days later at a Boone County hospital.

The victim's daughter, Kansas City law firm owner Susan Elizabeth Van Note, also is charged in the killing.
