ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man is facing murder charges for the death of a companion who died in a burglary gone wrong.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2l7N0Zf ) reports that 33-year-old Darren Williams was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder under a law that makes it murder if someone else dies during commission of a felony. He is also charged with burglary and two counts of misdemeanor assault.

Police say Williams and 33-year-old Donald Marks forced their way into an apartment on Feb. 6 and attacked 55-year-old Melvin Greenlee and a woman. Greenlee retrieved a shotgun and killed Marks. Prosecutors declined charges against Greenlee.
