Teen Charged In Fatal Stabbing Of 80-Year-Old Woman
(Strafford, MO) — A teenager is facing charges in juvenile court in the fatal stabbing an 80-year-old woman in Greene County. Mary Shisler was found stabbed to death late Friday in a field near her home after a neighbor reported that her home had been ransacked. When deputies arrived they couldn’t find Shisler or her car. They later found her car being driven by a 16-year-old from Republic. The Springfield News-Leader reports that the 16-year-old boy is charged with seven offenses in Shisler’s death. Juvenile authorities say the equivalent of those charges if brought against an adult are first-degree murder, armed criminal action, abandonment of a corpse, second-degree burglary, stealing, attempted arson and tampering with a motor vehicle.
