Woman Accused in Stabbing Death of Boyfriend
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A woman is jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend during a dispute at an East St. Louis home.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that prosecutors in St. Clair County have charged 35-year-old Tomeca White with first-degree murder in connection with the death Friday of 40-year-old Demarco Thurman of St. Louis.
Police say Thurman was stabbed in the chest, presumably with a kitchen knife found at the scene.
White couldn't be reached for comment. She doesn't have a listed home telephone number, and court records don't show if she has an attorney.
