HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) - A Hannibal man is charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of a woman inside her apartment.
Charges against 49-year-old Travis Lane were filed Wednesday. He is jailed and does not have a listed attorney.
Lane is accused in the death of 28-year-old Jennie Jo Blankenship. Her body was found Aug. 16 in a bathtub of her apartment in Hannibal. An autopsy determined she had sustained blunt force trauma.
Court documents say Blankenship had been struck in the head and torso.
