Discovery of body in Missouri leads to murder charge

Regardless of what criminal charge a person is facing, he or she is presumed innocent unless sufficient evidence is provided that proves otherwise. Even when police and other law enforcement authorities make statements that make it seem as if a person is definitively guilty, they must provide evidence for their claims. At this time, however, it is unclear what evidence supports the claims that a man committed the murder of woman whose body was discovered in Missouri.

The man apparently became under the scrutiny of police during a traffic stop that occurred on a day in mid-August. Reports indicate that he was stopped for speeding. However, police say that 5,000 rounds of ammunition and 53 guns were discovered in his car, apparently suspected of being stolen. An officer claims that the man fired a gun at him, but the former was uninjured as the gun reportedly jammed.

However, the next day police visited a residence as they followed up on a stolen ammunition and weapons report. Officials claim that they discovered the body of a 34-year-old woman at the residence. The man is accused of killing her.

Though the man is accused of armed criminal action and first-degree murder as a result of her death, there are many details about the event that are unclear. This includes a potential motive for killing her and the man's relationship to the residence and woman. As a result of the charges against him in both circumstances, the Missouri man must now make several serious decisions. Often, people without legal training feel unprepared to do so. Fortunately, they have the right to an attorney who can ensure that they are fully informed about the path ahead of them.
