Man faces murder charge after fishing pole theft

 (AP) — A southwest Missouri man is charged with first-degree murder after prosecutors said he chased down two people he thought had stolen from his property and shot one of them.

Mark A. Fielder, 63, of Windsor, was charged with killing 41-year-old James Fannon late Thursday after a confrontation on a Henry County road near Fielder’s home, The Sedalia Democrat reported.

Fielder also was charged with two counts of armed criminal action, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, and second-degree assault. He was being held on $500,000 bond.

Prosecutors said Fielder saw two people fleeing in a car after stealing what one witness said was three fishing poles from his property.
