Kansas City woman charged in boyfriend's stabbing death
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death inside an apartment following an argument over the weekend.
Forty-seven-year-old Emma Jean Hyson is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 52-year-old Kenneth M. Wilcox. Her bond has been set at $250,000.
Court records show Hyson told investigators that she grabbed a knife and stabbed Wilcox on Saturday before passing out for several hours. She called police after waking up and finding Wilcox dead.
Kansas City police say Hyson claimed she stabbed Wilcox in self-defense. They say further information will be released as the investigation continues.
It wasn't immediately clear if Hyson has an attorney.
