Charges have been filed against Antoine Fielder, who's accused of murdering two Wyandotte County deputies on June 15.  

The Wyandotte County Prosecutor's Office is holding a news conference at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon to detail the charges. 

Deputies Theresa King and Patrick Rohrer were shot and killed during a prisoner transport at the court services building in Kansas City, Kansas.  A sheriff's office spokeswoman said they believe the Fielder took one of the deputies guns and turned it on them.

Their funerals were held Thursday.  

Fielder was also shot and had been in the hospital for the last few days.
