SIKESTON, Mo. - A Sikeston man faces a first-degree murder charge after a victim in a robbery attack died.

The robbery happened on December 7th, but Public Safety Sergeant Jim McMillen says 45-year-old Linnie Lee Andrews died Christmas day due to injuries received in that robbery.

Maurice Robinson, 29, of Sikeston now faces a charge of 1st-degree murder.

All four suspects believed to have been involved have been caught.

Officers arrested 22-year-old Julius Hudson and Robinson of Sikeston the night of the robbery.

Sgt. McMillan says officers found one of the other two suspects, 22-year-old Fabayan Larry, hiding in a hotel December 25th in Charleston and the other suspect, 30-year-old Jeremiah Watson, turned himself in on Christmas day.  Larry and Watson are also from Sikeston.

Officers say all four suspects broke into a home, hit two people on the head with their handguns and got away with some money.

Prosecutors say all four face burglary and assault charges.  Robinson now also faces first-degree murder.
