REEDS SPRING, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a woman who was arrested at the scene of a suspected southwest Missouri arson fire has been charged with fatally stabbing a 74-year-old man at a nearby home.
Thirty-year-old Elizabeth Rose Horn was charged Monday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Walter Scott in Stone County. Her attorney, Hannah Kohler, didn’t immediately return a phone message.
The Stone County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that deputies arrested the woman at the scene of Saturday’s fire in Reeds Spring. No one was hurt in the fire.
