Death penalty sought for man accused in 3 St. Louis killings

ST. LOUIS – Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for a St. Louis man charged with killing three people in two separate shootings last year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday that prosecutors have filed notice that they will seek to have 26-year-old Ollie Lynch Jr. put to death if he’s convicted.

Lynch is charged with three counts of first-degree murder. He’s accused in the May 2017 shooting death of 31-year-old Jeramee Ramey and June 2017 shooting deaths of 17-year-old Jalen Woods and 25-year-old Amber Green.

Police say Ramey was shot with a AK-47 during an argument over a dice game. Woods and Green were among five people inside a car at a gas station ambushed by masked men. Two other people were injured in that shooting.
