ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say two St. Louis men have been charged in the death of a suspected carjacking accomplice in a crash.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 22-year-old Percy Robinson and 18-year-old Courtney Clay were charged Wednesday with second-degree murder. Their suspected accomplice, 20-year-old Christopher Gragg, died around 2 a.m. Tuesday, just blocks away from where a GMC Acadia was stolen at gunpoint from a woman and her 3-, 5- and 8-year-old sons. The woman and her children weren't hurt.
Under Missouri law, prosecutors can file murder charges against accomplices if someone dies during the commission of a felony, even if the accomplices didn't directly cause the death. Robinson and Clay also face robbery and armed criminal action charges. They're being held without bail.
