The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 23-year-old Keina Jackson was charged Saturday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. Police said Jackson stabbed 45-year-old Anthony Smith Friday evening.
Normandy Det. Sgt. Steve Whitworth said Jackson and a witness said the couple got into an argument when Jackson’s young son was throwing a cup around and Smith smacked him on the legs. They told authorities Smith told the boy to stop, but he threw the cup at Smith.
