ST. LOUIS (AP) –  The parents of a 21-year-old man who was stabbed to death at a St. Louis homeless shelter are suing the shelter.

Jeremy Dunlap was stabbed by another homeless man on Feb. 12, 2008, at New Life Evangelistic Center.

Robert Gamble was convicted of murder and is serving a 30-year sentence.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Dunlap’s parents filed separate suits Monday in St. Louis Circuit Court.

His mother claims the center failed to check or screen residents for weapons and did not have adequate security.

His father’s suit acknowledges security workers but claims they were negligent.
