FERGUSON, Mo. - A St. Louis County woman is accused of fatally stabbing her aunt.

St. Louis County prosecutors on Thursday charged 50-year-old Rhonda Rhodes with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. She is jailed on $250,000 cash-only bond.

Ferguson police say Rhodes stabbed to death 60-year-old Bernice Winston at Rhodes' apartment. A maintenance worker found the body Thursday morning. The door was open slightly and the worker looked in and saw Winston dead on her bed.
