Kansas man charged in death of woman in Missouri apartment
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A Kansas man has been charged with killing a woman in a Missouri apartment where officers found three children hiding under a blanket.
Thirty-one-year-old Derrick Williams, of Kansas City, Kansas, is charged in Jackson County Circuit Court with second-degree murder in the death of 32-year-old Denise Gayle. He's also charged with three counts each of armed criminal action and endangering the welfare of a child. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
Court records say officers responding to a report of gunfire and screams found a naked Williams outside the apartment. The records say that Williams told police they would find a dead woman inside the building and that he killed her.
One of the children found hiding in the apartment told police, "He killed my mom."
