Nelson, Anthony C DOB 11-15-1992 SSN 425-75-2858.jpg 

Just after 10a.m on Saturday, September 30th, Oregon County Deputies, along with officers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, responded to reports of a shooting at a property on V highway. They arrived at the residence to find 58-year-old Joel C. Nelson shot and a 1st responder performing CPR. Nelson was pronounced dead shortly after the arrival of an Oregon County Ambulance crew. Twenty-four year old Anthony Colin Nelson, the victim's nephew, was taken into custody.

Oregon County officials say it appears there was an argument between Joel and Karen Dutton, Anthony's mother that ended when Anthony shot Joel with a handgun.

Anthony C. Nelson was charged with Murder 2nd Degree (Class A Felony) and Armed Criminal Action (Unclassified Felony) and remains in custody with bond set at $500,000
