Prosecutors accuse man of first-degree murder in KC stabbing

Shortly after Darrell Aderholt, 42, was stabbed to death inside his Kansas City home Saturday night, police arrested Travys A. Porter, 25, who had blood on his clothes, a cut on his hand and a knife in his pocket, according to court records.

Jackson County prosecutors on Sunday charged Porter with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. He is accused of knocking at Aderholt’s home near 12th Street and Ewing Avenue, and attacking Aderholt. A woman inside the home said Aderholt told her to go to a back room when he realized Porter was at the door.

Homicide Sgt. Martin Cobbinah said police had not determined a motive. He said Porter was dating Aderholt’s ex-girlfriend, but Porter declined to talk to detectives.
