Paris Teen Charged With Murder

A Paris teen faces charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 24-year-old Matthew Stewart last November. 17-year-old Charles Armour is the second person charged in Stewart’s death. 18-year-old Christopher Brickey of Laddonia was previously arrested. Stewart’s body was found in a ditch along Audrain County Road 556 near Vandalia. Court documents say a member of Armour’s family had a previous dispute with Stewart. Armour is scheduled to have an initial hearing in Audrain County Court Tuesday.
