Mo. Man Accused of Killing Woman, Ditching Body in Car Trunk
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man is jailed without bond on charges that he fatally shot a woman whose body was found in a car trunk in southwestern Illinois.
Prosecutors in St. Louis have charged 39-year-old Glynn Smith with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the Nov. 25 death of Sybil Brandon, also of St. Louis.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a witness told police 50-year-old Brandon was shot while partying at Smith's house. Brandon's body was found Dec. 20 in a car trunk in Madison, Ill., just northeast of St. Louis.
An autopsy showed that Brandon died of a gunshot wound to the head.
Online court records don't show whether Smith has an attorney. He doesn't have a listed home telephone number.
