SPANISH LAKE (KMOX/AP) - A 42-year-old north St. Louis County man is accused of beating his 63-year-old neighbor to death with a lamp before stealing his car. 
Police arrested Keith Hill early Sunday morning. He's since been charged with one count of second degree murder, one count of first degree robbery, one count first degree burglary and two counts of armed criminal action.
