TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A fourth person has been charged in the 2014 kidnapping and killing of a woman on the Fort Riley military base.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a news release Tuesday that 26-year-old Shantrell Woody is charged with one count of kidnapping resulting in death. The Associated Press left a phone message seeking a comment from an attorney listed as representing Woody.
Twenty-four-year-old Amanda Clemons’ body was found in Geary County in February 2014. An autopsy determined that Clemons died of a sharp-force injury.
Prosecutors say Woody and three others kidnapped Clemons and held her on the military base before she was killed.
The other three people accused of being involved in the incident have each been charged with one count of kidnapping resulting in death and are being held in the Geary County Jail.
