Man Charged with Binding, Killing Southwest Missouri Woman
A 25-year-old man is charged with killing a woman who was found with her throat slashed last month.
Lebanon police say Kevin Kayden was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Laquita Williams.
Williams was found dead Dec. 10 at a home in Lebanon.
The Springfield News-Leader reports police say in the release that Williams’ arms were tied behind her back and a cord was around her neck. Her throat had been cut.
Police say Kayden had a history of domestic abuse against Williams and crime lab and the evidence tied him to the homicide.
Kayden is being held on $500,000 bond. Online court records do not show an attorney representing Kayden.
