As a result of her alleged role in the recent murder of a 17-year-old male in Douglas County, a Texas County woman now faces felony charges.
Judy L. Greuter, 56, of 4124 Roberts Road in Elk Creek, was charged by Texas County Prosecuting Attorney Mike Anderson with felony tampering with physical evidence.
Texas County Sheriff Carl Watson said that after Chris Jorgensen and Nathan Jensen allegedly killed Kenny Stout near Ava, they traveled to Greuter’s home. She is accused of then burning the two fugitives’ blood-stained clothing.
Watson said the pair went to Greuter’s place because of an unspecified connection in the past between Greuter and Jorgensen.
Investigative work done by Texas County deputy Mike Huffman helped lead to the arrest of Jorgensen and Jensen, who reportedly had a spat of their own that almost turned deadly while at Greuter’s place.
“If Jorgensen’s gun hadn’t misfired, we would have had another homicide,” Watson said.
Greuter was arrested at her residence by Missouri State Highway Patrol officers Thursday just before noon. She was transported to the Texas County Jail and is being held on $250,000 bond.
“She’s going to be with us a while,” Watson said. “She’s going to spend her Christmas in jail, unfortunately.”
