The St. Louis Circuit Attoney's office has charged Eugene Burrell, 43, with first-degree murder for last week's slaying of Justin Young.

As Daily RFT reported last Thursday, Burrell and Young had been engaged in an ongoing dispute. Young was in Burrell's neighborhood of the 4000 block of Maffitt August 26 when the men got into an argument just after midnight.

Burrell is accused of drawing a gun and shooting the 29-year-old Young multiple times. He's being held without bond.
