Man accused of burning car of missing Missouri woman
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Authorities say a man has been taken into custody on charges that he burned the vehicle of a suburban Kansas City woman who hasn't been seen since Thursday.
Kansas City Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kari Thompson says 27-year-old Kylr Yust was taken into custody around 8:30 Sunday morning in Edwards, Missouri. Thompson says Yust was arrested on charges of "knowingly burning" Jessica Runions' vehicle, which was found abandoned by a road in southern Kansas City Saturday.
Police say the search for Runions is considered a suspicious missing persons case.
KSHB-TV reports Yust is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
The Associated Press reported ealier about Runions being missing, that story can be found here.
