— A 45-year-old man has been charged in the stabbing death of a woman in Marshall, Mo.

Terry Thompson of Marshall was charged Friday in Saline County with one count each of first-degree murder and armed criminal action. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

The Marshall Democrat-News reports that Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers took Thompson into custody Thursday night in Clarksville, a Mississippi River town about 120 miles east of Marshall.

Thompson is accused in the death of 32-year-old Rebecca Fisher.

She was lying on the porch of her home when emergency workers arrived Wednesday night. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
