Woman Pleads Guilty to Murder of Holt’s Summit Man
A woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 2018 death of a 67-year-old central Missouri man.
Amy Steward pleaded guilty on Monday in the death of David Grant, of Holts Summit. She had originally been charged with first-degree murder and delivery of a control substance.
Steward was sentenced to life for second-degree murder, 10 years for armed criminal action and five years for unlawful possession of a firearm.
KRCG-TV reports court documents indicate Steward called 911 to report Grant’s death in April 2018. She told Callaway County deputies she found him dead from a gunshot wound to the head when she returned home from a friend’s house.
However, police said Steward’s friend didn’t corroborate that story.
