St. Louis prosecutors have charged 32-year-old John Dailey, of the 5400 block of Claxton, with first-degree murder, assault and armed criminal action stemming from a road-rage killing last month.

Christopher Walton-Jones, 19, was driving down North Broadway at around 10:30 p.m. September 22 when a pickup truck allegedly driven by Dailey entered the roadway and nearly struck Walton-Jones' vehicle.

A passenger with Walton-Jones yelled at the driver of the pickup truck. Moments later the driver of the truck fired a shot that struck Walton-Jones right beneath the armpit. He died shortly after.

Walton-Jones is being held without bond.
