CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -- More than seven years after a St. Louis County woman was killed, her nephew is now facing murder charges.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 53-year-old Ronald Abrams is charged in the January 2006 killing of 59-year-old Margaret Luckett.
The two and other family members shared a home in Pagedale. Abrams was originally charged in 2006 but the case was dropped because he was treated for psychological problems and found permanently incompetent to stand trial.
Now, he’s about to be released from a psychiatric hospital, prompting the new charges of second-degree murder and armed criminal action filed last week. He is jailed on $100,000 bond.
Luckett was stabbed to death.
