ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A fourth person has been charged with killing a man who was found dead in north St. Louis in mid-May.

Marshall Burrage, 35, was arrested Monday and charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Burrage is now the fourth person to be charged in the death of Javon Durham.

Autuan Pullem, 19, and Merkeith brown, 22, were both charged with second-degree murder in the case late last week. Another suspect, 26-year-old Thomas Brooks, had already been charged with second-degree murder in Durham’s death.

According to documents, Durham made arrangements to buy over 35 grams of marijuana from an unknown source in the 4500 block of Alice on May 19.

Police said Durham entered a vehicle to buy the drugs and was immediately shot by Brooks in the chest and back.

An investigation led police to Brooks, who was arrested May 29 and remains in custody.

Pullem was arrested Thursday and is in custody on a $500,000 cash-only bond. Brown was taken into custody the next day and his bond was set at $300,000.

Burrage’s bond has not yet been set.
