An East St. Louis man is accused of killing a Mizzou student just days before Christmas.
The body of Jarrett Mosby was found in his car on December 23. Investigators with the Major Case Squad say Mosby agreed to meet Deneshion Swope for a drug deal. Police say the two men started to argue and Swope allegedly shot Mosby and moved his car to where it was eventually found.
Swope was on probation for gun charges, is held on a half-million dollar bond, and facing first-degree murder charges. Swope could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted.
