CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- Cedar Rapids police have arrested two people in connection with a homicide on the southwest side of town over two months ago.

A release from the department said investigators arrested D Anthony Ray Curd, 19, and 15-year-old Daimonay Richardson, both of Cedar Rapids, on Monday. Curd was taken to jail, and Richardson was transported to the Linn County Detention Center.

The arrest comes after police responded to 5663 Kirkwood Blvd. SW #9 at 3:37 p.m. on June 10, where they found Ronald Kunkle, 22, of Cedar Rapids, dead. Police initially said they were investigating the incident as a suspicious death, but later changed it to a homicide investigation for then-undisclosed reasons.

The Monday release said Kunkle died as a result of multiple stab wounds to the body.

According to online court records, the Cedar Rapids police department executed a search warrant on Curd in early July. That warrant was sealed for 90 days on Aug. 8. Court records also show Curd was charged with third-degree burglary last November, stemming back to an incident on Oct. 11, 2012. Curd received a deferred judgement on that charge, but later violated his probation. Records show Curd was also charged with trespassing in April, and pleaded guilty.

An obituary for Kunkle said he was born in Detroit, Mich. and attended Manson Northwest Webster High. He previously lived in Cedar Falls, where his parents now live.
