Pierce County prosecutors have charged a second man in connection with the home-invasion robbery of a 67-year-old Tacoma woman earlier this week.
Bobby McKinney, who is accused of masterminding the robbery, pleaded not guilty this afternoon to first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery and unlawful imprisonment. He was ordered held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
McKinney is the second man to be arrested and charged with robbing Gabriele Senn Tuesday night. A third man – Monaroes Sar – has been charged but is not in custody.
Two men broke into Senn’s home in the 3600 block of South Gunnison Street and held her hostage. They tried to access her bank account and, when that failed, ransacked her house.
Prosecutors charged 20-year-old Jesse Eugene Grimes on Thursday with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and unlawful imprisonment. He pleaded not guilty and was ordered jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail.
Prosecutors allege Grimes and Sar went inside Senn’s home. They allege McKinney of setting up the robbery because he knew Senn, court records state.
Grimes and McKinney have told detectives they are Juggalos.
