KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City man is facing charges in the death of a young woman whose body was found in Grandview, Missouri.
Jackson County prosecutors on Wednesday charged 19-year-old Tyheem Anderson with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and kidnapping.
According to court records, the victim, identified as 17-year-old Amauri Hughes, went to Anderson’s house in Kansas City.
Anderson told police he and the victim had been in a long relationship.
On Saturday, Nov. 11, a witness called police and told them she had seen Hughes restrained in a surrender position. The following day officers were tipped that they could find the victim at another residence.
Grandview officers responded and found Hughes in a lot near the area of E. 127th Street and White Avenue. She had suffered trauma, including stab and gunshot wounds. Also a tooth was missing, according to court documents.
Court documents say officers searched a Kansas City residence, where they found mail and other items with the Anderson’s name on them. They also found blood and a tooth.
Anderson admitted to being with Hughes on Sunday, Nov. 12, when they had an argument.
