ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A man was charged with murder after a woman’s death in Jefferson County.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department said 39-year-old Angela McDonald died at the hospital after deputies went to the 1400 block of Wilderness Acres Lane near Festus for a reported sick case on Jan. 23.

The day before McDonald was taken to the hospital, deputies said they received a call from a person, later identified as Christopher Buechting. During the call, the 43-year-old suspect reportedly indicated he was assaulted by McDonald, but he was fine and was leaving the residence.

McDonald died as a result of her injuries on Jan. 25, police said.

Buechting was later arrested and charged with second-degree murder. His cash-only bond was set at $100,000.
