18-year-old accused in St. Louis-area violent crime binge
CLAYTON (AP) - Authorities believed that a fatal shooting in the town of Bellefontaine Neighbors last month was part of a violent two-day crime binge in north St. Louis County.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 18-year-old Willie Roberts was charged Friday with first-degree murder, three counts of robbery, and other crimes.
Court documents said that Roberts and others went to a Bellefontaine Neighbors home on July 16 and fired several shots through a bedroom door, killing 20-year-old Kheyjuan Davis. The court documents said the men also shot a Lincoln Navigator as they fled.
The next day, according to court documents, Roberts and his associates were involved in at least three carjackings and a robbery, all in north St. Louis County.
Roberts was jailed on $1 million cash-only bond.
