Bruner is being held without bond in Joplin. Jail officials say it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Moore was in his first year as a Missouri Southern offensive line coach. He came to MSSU after three seasons at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Ill.

The university canceled its Homecoming activities and said in a statement the school was "stunned and deeply saddened" by Moore’s death.
