COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Two 20-year-olds have been charged in the killing of a 14-year-old during a dispute about a marijuana deal.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Alex Glay and Erick Libimbi are jailed without bond in Boone County on charges of second-degree murder in the death Nasir Smith. They also are charged with distribution of a controlled substance. No attorneys are listed for them in online court records.
Libimbi was wounded in an exchange of gunfire Tuesday in Glay's apartment. Libimbi and Glay gave differing accounts of what led to the death of Smith. Both blamed the other for selling drugs to Smith before gunfire erupted.
Officers also found marijuana in several locations in Glay's apartment.
