Man suspected in St. Louis killing extradited
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man has been extradited from an Illinois prison to St. Louis to face murder charges filed more than a year ago.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 20-year-old Tony Ross of East St. Louis, Illinois, was charged in April 2015 with second-degree murder in the death of Bobby Christman. The Southeast Missouri State University student was killed in January 2015 as he sat in a parked car with his brother and girlfriend in St. Louis. Police say the shooting was part of a botched carjacking.
Ross was brought to St. Louis July 29 and arraigned on Monday. He was serving time in an Illinois prison after pleading guilty to possession of a stolen vehicle in St. Clair County, Illinois, in April.
