According to the probable cause statement, Starks, along with co-defendant Jerry Watkins, engaged in a series of armed robberies. The statement details that Starks provided Watkins with a handgun during these events.

The first incident involved Victim #1, who was leaving his residence when Starks and Watkins allegedly displayed a handgun and demanded cash. Watkins, armed with the handgun provided by Starks, forcibly stole cash from Victim #1.

The following day, Starks and Watkins allegedly targeted Victim #2 and Frederick Jett. The probable cause statement indicates that Watkins, again armed with the handgun from Starks, demanded cash and other items from Victim #2 and Jett. During this robbery, Watkins allegedly shot and killed Jett, who had his hands up at the time.

St. Louis County Police Department’s Bureau of Crimes Against Persons detectives are leading the investigation.

Authorities emphasize that charges are merely accusations, and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
