ST. LOUIS — A murder suspect who was released from jail last week after the Circuit Attorney’s Office failed to attend multiple court hearings in the case is back in custody, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
Brandon Campbell, 30, was arrested just before 7:30 p.m. at a home in Jennings in the 2500 block of Tyrell Drive, the U.S. Marshals Service said in a statement.

This is the second time Campbell has been arrested by U.S. Marshals; when he was initially charged with murder in December, he fled to Arizona and then Texas, where he was later arrested, court documents say.
Campbell was charged with fatally shooting 30-year-old Randy Moore in the 3700 block of Aldine Avenue last year. Moore, of north St. Louis County, was pronounced dead at a hospital. Charges said surveillance video showed Campbell arrive in a Chrysler 300 and argue with Moore before shooting him as Moore walked away.
