A Pacific woman is facing criminal charges related to the shooting deaths of two men near Stanton Friday. 

Marie E. Pursley, 23, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one count of first-degree robbery. The murder charges are applicable when a person dies in an attempt to commit a felony, according to a press release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department.   

Pursley’s bond is set at $250,000 cash. 

According to investigators, Pursley drove the two men — Nolan D. Green, 23, from Gray Summit, and Curtis G. Wertenberger, 24, from St. Clair — to the residence on the 3300 block of Lollar Branch Road, which is on the north side of Interstate 44 between Stanton and St. Clair. 

Police said the trio hoped to rob the individuals who lived at the residence of money and narcotics. 

“(Pursley) dropped them off a few hundred yards from the residence knowing that they had firearms in their possession to commit the crime,” Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton wrote in a press release. In court records, Wertenberger is said to have brought a “large black rifle” with him.   

Pursley then went into the residence, which Pelton described as “a shop or shed with some living quarters.” While in a bedroom of the home, Pursley told police that she and an unidentified person were sharing marijuana when they heard Green and Wertenberger enter the home. 

The unidentified person then left the room and went into another room, returning to retrieve a gun after telling Pursley that “they had pointed a gun at him.” 

A short time later, Pursley said she heard “numerous gun shots” coming from another room. Pursley told police she exited the room and found Green’s body on the stairs in the home. 

Pursley told police that she then ran up the stairs, finding Wertenberger’s body on the floor.  Then someone called 911, according to Pursley. 

Once officers arrived on the scene, they found both men’s bodies. Green’s body was taken to an area hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. Wertenberger was pronounced dead at the scene.  

Pelton said there will likely be additional charges filed in this case.
