EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in a shooting death last month.

The Belleville News-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1fGxSet) reports that St. Clair County prosecutors charged 20-year-old Montrell Spencer this week with first-degree murder.

Authorities say 49-year-old Leon Lucas Jr. of East St. Louis was killed Feb. 22 during an altercation.

Spencer was arrested Monday by officers who responded to a home in connection with a reported domestic dispute. Police say that after being arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, investigators learned he was suspected in Lucas‘ death.

Online court records don’t show whether he has an attorney. He has an unlisted home telephone number.
