St. Louis men charged with murder after alleged carjacking accomplice dies in crash

ST. LOUIS — Two St. Louis men accused of participating in a Soulard carjacking just before a crash that killed their accomplice are now facing murder charges, according to authorities.

Percy Robinson, 22, was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder under a Missouri law that allows prosecutors to file murder charges if someone dies during the commission of a felony, even if the defendant did not directly cause the death.

Robinson also faces a robbery charge and two counts of armed criminal action. He is being held without bail.

Facing the same four charges is Courtney Clay, 18.

The carjacking was reported at 10th and Lami streets at 1:54 a.m. Tuesday when three men stole a 2008 GMC Acadia at gunpoint from a 28-year-old woman accompanied by her three sons, ages 3, 5 and 8, police said. The woman and children weren't hurt.

The carjackers only got about six blocks before crashing into a tractor-trailer at Seventh Boulevard and Barton Street, police said.
