Three Individuals Indicted on Carjacking and Murder Charges

Floyd Barber, Jherrica Dixon and Kurt Wallace indicted in a ten-count indictment Thursday

ST. Louis, MO/November 18, 2017 (STL.News) – Floyd Barber, 22, Jherrica Dixon, 23, and Kurt Wallace, 25, each of Saint Louis, were indicted in a ten-count federal indictment Thursday, November 16, 2017.

The indictment alleges that, between August and October 2017, Barber, Dixon and Wallace participated in at least five armed carjackings.  On September 16 and October 15, 2017, the carjacking victims were shot.  On October 16, 2017, victim Jaz Granderson, a former Desmet Jesuit High School assistant football coach, was shot and killed.

“This is a series of vicious and senseless crimes.  We just doubled the number of violent crime prosecutors in this office so people who commit carjackings and armed robberies in the City of St. Louis can expect very aggressive prosecution by this office and the Circuit Attorney’s Office,” said U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen.

If the defendants are convicted, these charges carry a maximum penalty of death or life in prison.  In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

This case is being investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in cooperation with the Saint Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office.

As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
