A St. Louis man is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Ebony Jackson, whose body was discovered days after her baby was found abandoned at an apartment complex.
Charges were filed Wednesday against 40-year-old Dyanthany Proudie. A probable cause statement says Proudie shot Jackson in the head on Jan. 2.
Three-month-old Donavan Prom was found in an interior hallway of a St. Louis County apartment complex on Jan. 4. He was unharmed.
