Krestling and Deroy

Alex B. Kresting, 24, and Monica L. Deroy, 41

Two persons of interest were arrested Tuesday night in connection in a fatal stabbing that occurred Sunday.

Alex B. Kresting, 24, and Monica L. Deroy, 41, were taken into custody by the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis at a residence in Foley around 10 p.m. Tuesday night. The duo was wanted for questioning in the stabbing death of Christopher Wright, 44, who was fatally wounded after a fight on Grizzleys Lane in unincorporated Lincoln County.

An autopsy is still pending on Wright at this time.

Two other individuals were arrested at the scene by the Major Case Squad on unrelated charges.

This is a developing case. A full story on the incident and arrests will be featured in this week's edition of the Lincoln County Journal and lincolnnewsnow.com.
