Man charged in double homicide in St. Louis suburb
KINLOCH, Mo. – A 21-year-old man is facing two counts of first-degree murder in a double homicide in the St. Louis suburb of Kinloch.
Darren Thomas Jr., of Bellefontaine Neighbors, was charged Friday with two counts of first-degree murder and nine other charges stemming from a double killing last month.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Thomas is being held without bond.
He is charged in the deaths of 39-year-old Richard Berry and 21-year-old Destiny Howard. Police say they were shot to death Dec. 17 as part of a carjacking.
A 3-year-old child and another woman in the car were not hurt.
Police say Jackson stole the vehicle after the shooting.
Online court records do not show an attorney for Thomas.
