CLAYTON, Mo. (KSDK) - Detectives who were summoned to a Town & Country home on Monday afternoon were told someone was gravely injured in an accident. But an examination of the scene changed their minds.
The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office charged 59-year-old William Gunter with first-degree murder.
The victim, 55-year-old Suzanne Gunter, was seriously injured and rushed to Mercy Hospital where she later died. Autopsy results indicated that her wounds were not consistent with the report given to officers at the scene.
Police will not say what was used to strike Suzanne Gunter.
The Town & County Police Department turned the homicide investigation over to the St. Louis County Police Department.
