Police arrested 37-year-old Tianna Thomas and her 17-year-old son. The teen was charged with murder and his mother was charged with accessory to murder with a deadly weapon after police believe she drove her son from the scene before they arrived.

The Clark County coroner says Nelson died of multiple gunshots. Missouri State will hold a public memorial service on Sunday, the 29th for in the Plaster Student Union Theater on the Springfield campus, starting at 1 p.m.
