Wife of slain Missouri insurance salesman faces charges

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — The widow of a western Missouri insurance salesman who was shot to death in his office is now charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Thirty-nine-year-old Teresa Stone, of Independence, is the second person charged in connection with the killing of 42-year-old Randy Stone in March 2010.

David Love, the couple’s former pastor at Hope Baptist Church, was arrested in November in South Carolina while working as a truck driver. He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

Relatives have said Love and Teresa Stone had been having an affair for years.

Jackson County prosecutors announced the widow’s indictment on Tuesday. She was released on $50,000 bond.

Her attorney, John P. O’Connor, says he hasn’t had a chance to read the indictment and is not prepared to comment on it.
