Man charged in St. Louis chase-related death
ST. LOUIS (AP) – A St. Louis-area man is charged with second-degree murder after police say a car chase of him led to a crash that killed his passenger.
Twenty-three-year-old Labradford Davis of the village of Riverview also was charged Monday with resisting arrest.
Police say that while investigating a report of someone displaying a weapon, they pursued a car in which they say a backseat passenger appeared to act suspicious.
After a chase involving high speeds, police say they found the suspect’s car crashed into the concrete base of a stop light. The wreck killed 24-year-old Louis Davis of St. Louis.
Online court records don’t show whether Labradford Davis has an attorney to discuss the case on his behalf.
