An 18-year-old Columbia man who was accused of murdering a man at a gas station had additional charges filed in a grand jury indictment filed on Friday.

Seth Andrew Brinegar, of Columbia, was charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. The indictment also charged him with unlawful use of a weapon and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. An arraignment is set for 9 a.m. Monday at the Boone County Courthouse. He is being held without bond at the Boone County Jail.

According to a probable cause statement, Brinegar is accused of shooting and killing Corey Bilger at the FastLane parking lot on West Boulevard on Feb. 1. Bilger was 33.

Court documents say security video shows Bilger talking on a phone while pumping gas when Brinegar pulled into the parking lot. The video allegedly shows Brinegar with his window down and talking to someone before stopping behind the Bilger's vehicle. Bilger approached Brinegar's vehicle and was gunned down, the statement says.

Several customers were at the open gas station, police say. A car with a 6-month-old passenger was hit, but the baby wasn't hurt, court documents say.
