Police: Carjackers charged with murder after victim kills accomplice in self-defense

A man and woman have been charged with murder after an armed carjacking victim shot and killed their 18-year-old accomplice in self defense at a South County car wash over the weekend.

Police officers found Brandon Whitfield, 18, of the 1700 block of Rosado in Spanish Lake, 63138, dying of at least one gunshot wound when they responded to the scene at the Classic Car Wash in the 4800 block of Lemay Ferry Road around 1:17 a.m. Sunday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

St. Louis County prosecutors on Tuesday charged Markus Billingsley, 34, and Radonna Smith, 36, both of the 3900 block of South Grand Boulevard in St. Louis, 63118, with a slate of felonies in Whitfield’s death.

Along with second-degree murder, prosecutors also charged the pair with first-degree assault, first-degree robbery, vehicle hijacking and four counts of armed criminal action. It is the first known use in South County of the newly enacted vehicle hijacking/carjacking law sponsored by Rep. David Gregory of Sunset Hills.

Billingsley and Smith are being held in the St. Louis County Justice Center on $250,000 cash-only bond.

Police: Woman fatally shot after barging into apartment

By Ricardo Torres-Cortez
A man fatally shot his girlfriend’s former partner this morning in an apparent act of self-defense, according to Metro Police.

The woman suffered a single gunshot wound and died at University Medical Center, Lt. Ray Spencer said.

Officers responded about 4 a.m. to an apartment complex in the 5200 block of Charleston Boulevard, near Nellis Boulevard, Spencer said.

The former partner showed up at an apartment unannounced to gather some of her belongings and began loudly knocking and banging on the door, Spencer said.

The man grabbed a gun, went to the door and asked who was there multiple times, Spencer said.

No one answered, so he cracked the door open, Spencer said. That’s when the woman shoved her way inside, prompting the man to open fire, Spencer said.

When the man recognized the woman, he began to render aid, Spencer said.
