Missouri police claim family dispute led to murder

Families are complex. Often, emotions can run high and what may seem to be relatively minor disputes to outsiders can actually hold a great deal of hurt and anger. Unfortunately, police in Missouri believe that a dispute between two family members led to murder.

Police claim that they received a phone call about a shooting one afternoon on a day in early June. The caller allegedly identified who he or she believed to be the shooter and the victim. When police arrived at the scene -- a park where a car show was taking place -- they discovered that the alleged victim had been transported to the hospital in a private vehicle and the person believed to have shot him had left the scene.

Police say that through their investigation, they learned that the shooting was the culmination of an ongoing familial dispute. The nature of that dispute is unclear. The man believed to have pulled the trigger was taken into custody without incident soon after and is expected to be charged with armed criminal action and first degree murder.

A criminal case involving a murder charge is always high stakes. A conviction will likely have a significant impact on the rest of the defendant's life. Unfortunately, many people in Missouri who are charged with a crime feel unprepared to make informed decisions about their case. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can help them determine the most appropriate course of action. With such a person by their side, those charged with a crime often feel more confident in the decisions that they make.
