ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A memorial has been set up by the alumni board of a Northwest Missouri State University fraternity to help fund the family of an Oakville High School graduate killed at a bar last week.
The university said in a release Saturday that the Sigma Phi Epsilon Alumni Board has set up the Tomarken Smith Memorial Fund at Citizens Banks and Trust to help the family of Smith, who died of head injuries. He was a senior pre-professional studies major and a member of the fraternity.
The Nodaway County prosecutor has filed charges of second-degree murder and first-degree assault against 23-year-old Tony Overlin and 31-year-old Kevin Dell Mooney, both of Bethany. They were jailed on $100,000 bond, and their arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday. No attorney is listed for them in online court records.
Overlin and Mooney are accused of waiting until a bar closed and attacking Smith as he left the bar.
Police said Smith, a senior at Northwest Missouri State, said the 21-year-old died after being attacked by two men outside a Maryville, Missouri bar early Friday morning.
Two men, 31-year-old Kevin Mooney and 23-year-old Tony Overlin, have since been charged with second-degree murder in Smith’s death.
The two suspects are scheduled to make their first court appearance on Tuesday.
