ST. LOUIS — A Taylorville man faces a felony domestic assault charge in connection with the death of a woman who fell from a St. Louis parking garage near Busch Stadium over the weekend.

At about 1:45 a.m. on Sunday, police found Allissa L. Martin, 27, dead on a concrete ramp of the Stadium East Parking Garage just east of Ballpark Village downtown.

Prosecutors have charged Bradley S. Jenkins, 30, of Taylorville, with felony third-degree domestic assault, according to charging documents. Bail was set at $100,000, cash only.

Both were Illinois prison guards.

Police directed calls to the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office, which did not immediately return questions. 

The incident was following last Saturday's Cardinals-Cubs game.

Police: Decatur man arrested after making 'multiple' drug transactions

Police found Martin's cellphone on the seventh floor of the garage, its video camera still rolling, charges say.

"The recording showed her pointing the camera toward herself," Detective Mark West wrote in a probable cause statement. "She then turned the camera toward this defendant and he was shown on camera. They were arguing."

Martin can be heard on the recording yelling at Jenkins to stop punching her face, charges say. She then dropped the phone.

"Shortly after that, you hear her scream as she falls," West wrote.

Jenkins told police he and Martin were married May 22 in Las Vegas, charges said. He told police their coworkers had accompanied them to the Cardinals-Cubs game at Busch Stadium and that they had argued during the game.
