Camdenton man charged in 2006 homicide
CAMDENTON (AP) - A 52-year-old Missouri man has been charged in a nearly decade-old shooting death.
The Camden County Sheriff's Office said David W. Smith of Camdenton was charged with first-degree murder in the April 2006 shooting death of 26-year-old Shawn E. Spencer.
The sheriff's office said in a release Smith was arrested Tuesday and was being held without bond. Online court records didn't list a lawyer for Smith.
Deputies responding to a report of a shooting at Smith's home on April 1, 2006, searched the property, talked to Smith and left after not finding any evidence of a crime. Spencer's mother reported her son missing a year later. The sheriff's department said two witnesses have since come forward.
The department said Spencer's body hadn't been found, but the investigation continued.
