(KMOV) – A young girl and her boyfriend have been charged with gunning down the girl's father in East St. Louis after the father disapproved of the relationship.
Chastity Butler, 18, and Devin Teer, 19, were arrested on Wednesday and were charged with first degree murder on Thursday evening.
Police are unsure if Butler or Teer pulled the trigger that killed Chadwick Butler on Wednesday, but say both will still be charged with first degree murder.
Police say Butler had called Teer and told him they could catch her dad when he left the house on Bond Street. Police tell News 4 that all Chadwick had done wrong to his daughter was disapprove of her boyfriend.
They are currently being held in an East St. Louis jail.
