A man and woman have been charged in the fatal shooting of a Pizza Hut employee during a robbery attempt in which the victim's coworkers hid in the freezer of the Kansas City, Kansas, restaurant. 

Wyandotte County prosecutors announced Tuesday that Gary Winters, 33, and old Lacricia Leak-Myers, 30, are charged with first-degree murder and attempted aggravated robbery in the Jan. 28 death of Laron Briggs, 25. 

Charging documents say that Leak-Myers was the driver and that Winters went inside the restaurant to rob it. The robbery failed, although the documents provided no details about what scuttled it.
