EDWARDSVILLE (AP) – Authorities say one of two suburban St. Louis men accused in the Illinois shooting death of a man during an alleged drug-related robbery has been arrested in Las Vegas.
The Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis says 37-year-old Turhan Robinson was arrested last week and awaits extradition to Illinois’ Madison County.
Robinson and 30-year-old Terrence Lee of Jennings, Missouri, are charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and armed robbery. Investigators allege the men shot 43-year-old Kenneth Deal of Venice on May 19 in Madison while trying to rob him of marijuana.
The attempted murder count relates to a shot fired from the suspects’ car at a Madison police officer during an ensuing chase.
Lee already is in custody. Online court records don’t show whether Robinson or Lee have attorneys.
