ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two brothers have been charged in the late July killing of a St. Louis hotel caterer who was shot and robbed while driving home from work.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1agL3uT ) reports 22-year-old Lorenzo E. Milton was charged Thursday with second-degree murder, robbery and armed criminal action in the death of John Paulsen. He was jailed without bond.
His older brother Ronald Milton was charged with threatening to kill a witness in the case and jailed on a $30,000 bond. Online court records did not list their attorneys.
Paulsen had left a Saturday night wedding at the Chase Park Plaza hotel when he was shot to death pulling over his car in south St. Louis. Relatives have said they think he stopped to close his car's convertible top.
