A Bonne Terre, Mis­souri, man has been charged with first-de­gree mur­der in the shoot­ing death of Christo­pher Moses in Sauget last week.

Wann was one of the five peo­ple iden­ti­fied from sur­veil­lance footage re­leased by po­lice on Mon­day, Lewis said. Two of the peo­ple in those pho­tos have been cleared of any wrong­do­ing.

Moses, of Fen­ton, Mis­souri, was found shot to death in his white Nis­san Fron­tier on Illi­nois 3 near South Eighth Street in Sauget on Fri­day.

Wann is be­ing held on a $400,000 bond at St. Fran­cois County Jail in Mis­souri, Lewis said.
