Missouri Man Accused of Murder in Iowa
KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) - A Missouri man faces a first-degree murder charge in Iowa, accused of killing another Missouri man last November.
Authorities say 25-year-old Tyler Hobbs, of St. Francisville, Mo., is charged with killing 40-year-old Shawn Wright, of Kahoka, Mo.
Wright's body was found by a farmer near the Mississippi River in rural Clark County, Mo. Officials say Wright died from a blow to the head.
Investigators say Wright had been killed early on Nov. 6 in Iowa's Lee County, and his body was moved to Missouri.
The Missouri Department of Corrections is holding Hobbs because of a parole violation. It's expected that he'll be extradited to Iowa to face the murder charge.
