ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Last month’s murder of a former St. Louis University volleyball player leads to action by a city alderman to restrict the resale of cellphones.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the bill by Alderman Craig Schmid would require dealers of second-hand electronics to get identifying information when they buy the phones.  Violators could get up to three months in jail and a 500 dollar fine.

The action comes after 23-year-old Megan Boken was shot to death August 18th in the Central West End for her I-phone.  Two suspects are charged with murder in her death.
