INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City man has been charged in the fatal stabbing of a woman at her Independence home.

Jackson County prosecutors charged 26-year-old Cory King Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of 63-year-old Louise M. Dickey. Court documents say Dickey was found dead Tuesday night after neighbors told authorities that they noticed Dickey’s vehicle was missing from her driveway. The vehicle was later found at a convenience store.

It was not immediately clear if King has an attorney who could speak on his behalf. Prosecutors have requested a $500,000 cash bond.
