Prosecutors have also charged the Texas County resident with multiple felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon. A judge ordered him to be held without bond according to media reports. First-degree murder carries a sentence of death or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole in Missouri. The man is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 15 to enter a plea.
