CHARLESTON -- A Charleston man was indicted for the March murder of Justin Robinson during the recent term of the Grand Jury in Mississippi County.

A warrant was issued for Kent's arrest and served Oct. 10 while in federal custody in Ste. Genevieve on non-related charges. No bond has been set and Kent remains in federal custody in Ste. Genevieve. Hearnes said officials do not yet know when Kent's first court appearance will be.
