  • A St. Louis man is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Ebony Jackson, whose body was discovered days after her baby was found abandoned at an apartment complex.
     
    Charges were filed Wednesday against 40-year-old Dyanthany Proudie. A probable cause statement says Proudie shot Jackson in the head on Jan. 2.
     
    Three-month-old Donavan Prom was found in an interior hallway of a St. Louis County apartment complex on Jan. 4. He was unharmed.
     
    Jackson's body was found in the trunk of her own car on a desolate St. Louis street on Jan. 8.
     
    Jackson is a former resident of East St. Louis, Ill., who was living in Oklahoma City at the time of her death.
     
    Proudie is jailed and does not yet have an attorney.
