Wife of slain Missouri insurance salesman faces charges
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
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.
