For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Missouri

ST. LOUIS – A man from St. Louis, Missouri was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday and accused of a fatal shooting in November linked to the distribution of fentanyl.

Terrell Donta McDaniel, 41, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl and one count of murder through the use of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.

The indictment accuses McDaniel of discharging a firearm on November 2 resulting in the premeditated murder of Andre Nash.

An affidavit filed with a criminal complaint on December 7 says McDaniel shot Nash over a drug debt in the 4100 block of Clara Place in St. Louis and then dumped the body in the Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood in St. Louis.

The fentanyl conspiracy charge carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison, a $1 million fine, or both. The firearm charge is punishable by a sentence of up to life in prison, a $250,000 fine or both.

Charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The case was investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI.
