ST. LOUIS, MO - Three relatives of a man accused of killing a Missouri state trooper in southeast Missouri face new charges.

The suspect's wife, 23-year-old Coree Shockley of Van Buren, was charged Saturday with second-degree assault on a law enforcement officer.

Authorities say she drove to the home of the prosecuting attorney on the case on Friday, either to threaten or alarm him.  She previously was charged with tampering with evidence.

Her 32-year-old sister, Cynthia Chilton, was charged with perjury.  She allegedly lied on the stand at Coree's preliminary hearing on Friday.  Coree's 52-year-old mother, Sherry Chilton Keeney, was charged with evidence tampering for allegedly advising that fingerprints should be wiped from an ammunition box.

Sergeant Carl Dewayne Graham, Jr. was found dead on March 20, outside his home near Van Buren, Missouri.  On March 29, Coree's husband, Lance Shockley, was charged with murder.
