Omaha, Nebraska – A third person has been charged in connection with the murder of a 27-year-old Army sergeant who was home on leave.

Shydale Glass, 20, was charged with being an accessory to a felony and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. He is accused of hiding a gun used to fatally shoot Kyle Leflore in the early hours of the morning at Reign Lounge on January 6.

Larry Goynes, 27, and Jason Devers, 35, have already been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the slaying, which officials said occurred while LeFlore was being robbed of his necklaces.

Prosecutor Eric Fabian said Glass took a gun that was suspected of being used in the killing and moved it to an apartment.

“The defendant knew it was used in a homicide and was attempting to hide it,” Fabian said, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

Authorities found a black and chrome Smith & Wesson gun wrapped in a gray shirt with Glass’s DNA on it in an apartment, according to an affidavit.

Sergeant Kyle LeFlore, a Nebraska native, was at home visiting his family from his duty station in Korea when he died.

After being notified of his tragic death, LeFlore’s wife -who followed him into the Army after they graduated high school- returned to the US from Korea to inform their 5-year-old son of his father’s death.

“His little boy, he is amazing,” Kay LeFlore said. “Five years old. He’s going to grow up without a father and why?”

LeFlore was an avid fighter and won several competitions in Korea and other places he had been stationed.

He previously served in the Iraq War and also completed two tours in Afghanistan.
At the time of his death, he had reportedly been scheduled for reassignment to Arizona and was working on becoming an FBI Agent.
