First-degree kidnapping charges have been added to first-degree murder charges for Toby McCunn of Red Oak.  The kidnapping charges were filed in court July 3 with the offense date listed as April 15.


According to court documents, McCunn, 34, allegedly shot Joshua Jordan, 33, of Shenandoah, in the predawn hours of April 21, 2019. Court documents say McCunn went to a residence on Manti Street in Shenandoah in search of Jordan and was waiting there for him. When Jordan walked inside, McCunn fired several shots with a handgun. At the residence at the time were Kevin Weil, 32, and Brandy (Aradanas) Baker, 30, of Shenandoah. Following the shooting, McCunn fled from the scene but was apprehended around 1 p.m. the same day, in Shenandoah.


McCunn is scheduled for a Stand Your Ground hearing at 9:30 a.m. July 10 in Page County Court.

Calls to Page County Attorney Carl Sonksen and McCunn’s public defender were not returned. Division of Criminal Investigations special agent in charge, Darrell Simmons, said there is no information he can release about the case at this time.
