Two more men were charged Friday in connection with a weekend home invasion that left one man with a gunshot wound to the head.
Terrance T. Bassett, 19, of 1100 S. Matthew St. and Anthony D. Taliaferro, 18, of 107 Merriman Court face charges of home invasion and aggravated battery with a firearm. Because a person was shot with a handgun, 15 years were added onto the base range of six to 30 years.
On Thursday, Antonio L. Anderson, 32, of 1822 N. Missouri Ave., the alleged shooter, was charged with the same counts. Bobby L. Short, 30, homeless, was charged with armed robbery and residential burglary. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors allege Bassett, Anderson and Taliaferro went to the house in the 3200 block of West Starr Street looking for drugs and money. Short had allegedly set up the robbery and is being held legally accountable for the trio’s actions even though he was not apparently involved in the actual crime.
Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Pattelli said Bassett and Taliaferro both confessed to being present during the break-in. Both men were held Friday on $500,000 bond.
Short was previously held on $100,000 bond, while Anderson’s bond was set at $1 million.
