Witnesses discovered Deal's body laying the intersection of 3rd Street and Washington Avenue on May 19. Authorities do not believe that the suspects knew the victim.

Police arrested Lee last month in a St. Louis apartment complex.

Robinson will be extradited to Illinois, according to Detective Lt. Mike Nordstrom.
