A 19-year-old man accused of murder in Missouri fled to a neighboring state, and now he and the woman who allegedly helped him plan to leave the country are in cuffs.
According to the Ashland, Missouri, Police Department, 19-year-old Robin Morales-Sanchez allegedly attacked Moises Hernandez-Sanchez and another victim in an Ashland backyard on July 30th, stabbing both the victims multiple times before fleeing the state.
Both victims died, though police have not said what led to the stabbing.
The News Tribune reported that Ashland police, with the help of Kansas authorities, obtained a search warrant and took Morales-Sanchez into custody on Aug 4th after an investigation revealed the murder suspect to be located at a residence in Iola, Kansas.
Officers also developed probable cause believing Sarah Beth Malki to be harboring Morales-Sanchez and attempting to help the alleged murder suspect flee the country, according to Ashland police.
She was also arrested on Aug. 4th in Iola, Kansas and accused of hindering the prosecution of a felony.
Morales-Sanchez has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action, according to Ashland police.
According to the Boone County Journal, both Morales-Sanchez and Malki are in custody and waiting for extradition to Missouri. Neither of the fugitives are allowed bail.
