ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – 21-year-old Nathaniel Fuhrmann-Crocket has been charged with murder 1st degree and armed criminal action, for the homicide of 46-year-old Richard Kremer.  Both the victim and the suspect lived in the 7500 block of Vermont in south St. Louis.

St. Louis Police say that officers were dispatched to Vermont just after midnight on Friday, October 11th, where officers found the deceased body of Kremer, with lacerations to the abdomen and his chest.

An investigation revealed that the victim and suspect knew each other, as Nathaniel was the son of Kremer’s live in girlfriend.  The two had been fighting earlier in the day, and a physical confrontation erupted late Friday, when Crocket stabbed Kremer and fled the scene.

He was picked up St. Louis County Police in St. Louis County and turned over to St. Louis authorities.

Crocket is being held in the St. Louis Justice Center on a $300,000 cash bond only.
