The St. Louis County prosecutor's officer yesterday issued warrants on James B. Wilson, 19, of Florissant, and Jamon E. Spurlock, 18, of Hazelwood, charging each with one count of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and two counts of armed-criminal action.

Authorities believe that the two teens were involved in the killing of Bryson M. Kelly killed Tuesday in an apartment complex on Torchlamp Lane in Bel-Ridge. Kelly, 23, had been staying at the apartment for just a few days, according to police, and was acquainted with Wilson and Spurlock. Police believe the motive for the homicide was robbery.

Wilson and Spurlock are each being held on a $500,000 bond.
