Another suspect arrested in 2017 Cedar Rapids slaying

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have arrested another suspect in the 2017 shooting death of a man whose body was found in a Cedar Rapids alley.

Cedar Rapids police said in a news release Wednesday that 42-year-old Lloyd Koger Jr. is charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy and other crimes. He’s being held on $1 million bail. Linn County court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

Police say Koger and 19-year-old James Phillips killed 34-year-old Leland Harris, whose body was found Nov. 22, 2017. Phillips has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges and is scheduled to begin trial March 23.
