ST. LOUIS – The man charged with killing a south St. Louis husband and father who was just taking out his trash had a court hearing this morning.

20-year-old Kyle Stone appeared via closed-circuit video from the City Justice Center for a short hearing at the Carnahan Courthouse. At the hearing, an arraignment date was set for July 14 as the case heads to a grand jury.

Stone was accused of shooting and killing 47-year-old Christopher Brennan. The crime unfolded on the evening of May 20 on Flora Place in the Shaw neighborhood.

In court documents, a St. Louis Police detective revealed that surveillance video captured the entire incident.

A video showed Stone approaching Brennan and pointing a gun at him as Brennan took out the trash in his own backyard. Investigators said Brennan was shot in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police tracked down Stone within 20 minutes of the shooting and he was arrested later that evening after a short foot chase. Hundreds of green ribbons were put up around the Shaw neighborhood to remember Brennan and his Irish heritage.

Stone has pleaded not guilty and requested to represent himself. That was denied but his request resulted in his first hearing being rescheduled so that he could be assigned a public defender. Stone waived his 7-day detention hearing back on June 1. The hearing took place at 9:15 a.m. Thursday.

Stone now has three other felony charges against him filed this past Tuesday for alleged crimes that happened not long before the murder. Stone was charged with robbing a man and stealing his car in south city on May 17 and then stealing another car on May 19 just one day before Brennan was killed.

There have been no connections between those crimes and the killing.
