Woman charged with fatal stabbing of Kansas City man
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a Kansas City woman in a fatal stabbing.
The Kansas City Star reports that 35-year-old Clarisa Baldwin was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 40-year-old George Hamilton, of Kansas City. She is being held on a $150,000 bond. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.
Hamilton was suffering from multiple injuries when police responded to a disturbance Monday night and found him on a sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Court documents say witnesses heard arguing and saw Hamilton being stabbed several times. One witness said that when Baldwin was urged to leave the victim alone, she responded, "No, he took my phone."
