MARSHALL, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities in Marshall, MO have arrested and charged a woman with murder after a mother of three was stabbed to death on her front porch in Kansas City, KS.

On Saturday, the Marshall Police Department received information about a person of interest in a homicide investigation which was ongoing in KCK. Officers were told the woman was staying in a room at the Marshall Lodge.

Officers posted security at the hotel and made contact with detectives in KCK. 

Information about the investigation was exchanged and officers remained at the scene, waiting for an arrest warrant.

On Sunday, hotel staff members told officers that they had received word that the woman was being violent in her room and throwing things at the walls. The staff told police they were worried she might hurt herself.

Officers contacted the woman and identified her as Tara Alise Treece, 28, of KCK. Treece stood in front of the officers and began yelling and screaming at them, which alarmed nearby guests.

Officers arrested Treece for disturbing the peace. Shortly after the arrest, Wyandotte County issued warrants for second-degree murder and criminal use of weapons. Treece was also charged in Saline County with misdemeanor disturbing the peace.

Treece is being held on $200,000 bond for the charges in Wyandotte County and $2,500 bond for the charges in Saline County.

Marshall police say the Wyandotte County charges are connected to the murder of Megan Hernandez, 32, of KCK.

Hernandez, a mother of three, was killed while standing on the front porch of her home in the 900 block of S Mill Street on Jan. 18.
