ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Voluntary manslaughter charges have been filed against a man for a fatal stabbing on Laclede’s Landing March 10.
Warrants were issued Thursday against Darael Fentress, 29, of Kenwood. Fentress has been booked and charged with voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
According to police, Fentress stabbed Kyle Roberts, 28, of Sorento, Illinois, to death just before two o’clock in the morning of March 10. The two “were engaged in a verbal confrontation,” prior to the stabbing, police said. Fentress then fled.
The stabbing, coupled with a fatal shooting in the same area a day earlier, left St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson on the defensive about his department’s ability to prevent such crimes.
