JACKSON COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

A Grandview man has been charged with murder after a woman's body was on fire near a dumpster on Sunday.

Kasanova Callier, 27, has been charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of armed criminal action.

According to court documents, Grandview police responded to the 6700 block of E 119th Street after a body was reported to be on fire.

Officers found the body, extinguished the fire and tracked the body's dragging in the snow from an apartment complex stairwell nearby. They also found blood and heard from witnesses of a disturbance in the apartment where police had responded previously on domestic disturbances involving the victim, Lynnette Williams, and the defendant.

The Medical Examiner advised the victim had suffered deep cuts to her throat and a stab wound to her abdomen.

Callier's shoe was matched to a unique shoe print found near the drag marks at the crime scene. Evidence of blood was found in the apartment. Callier told Grandview detectives that Williams was a bad mother and she had tried to stab him so he had to kill her.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $250,000 cash for Callier.
