Jackson County prosecutors have charged a 42-year-old man with second-degree murder, accusing him of beating his girlfriend to death in Kansas City.
Court records said Lamont C. Kemp brought Laquita A. Long, 34, to his home in the 7400 block of College Avenue on Tuesday night and confronted her about rumors that she was “messing around” on him.
They argued outside. He allegedly beat her with his fists.
