(KMOV) – Two men have been charged after a man was found dead in north St. Louis County.

James B. Wilson, 19 , and Jamon E. Spurlock, 18, have been charged with one count of Murder in the Second Degree, one count of Robbery in the First Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.

 

Officers responded to an apartment complex located at 9050 Torchlamp Tuesday afternoon just before 3:30 p.m. to conduct a homicide investigation. Bryson M.
