Kansas City man accused of beating neighbor found ‘covered’ in blood: Allegations

A Kansas City man is accused of beating his neighbor at his Emerson Manor Apartments home Tuesday afternoon and told witnesses not to call police because the alleged killer was “covered” in blood.

Jackson County prosecutors charged Charles E. Dickens F. against Stamper, 57. Taimer is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action for the murder. As of Thursday, Stamper was being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail.

Kansas City police officers were called to an apartment building in the 2000 block of East Linwood Boulevard after what was initially reported as a cut, Officer Donna Drake, a department spokeswoman, said at the scene Wednesday afternoon.

Officers at the time had already taken Stamper into custody as a person of interest.

Officers responding to the emergency Wednesday were directed to the fourth-floor apartment by a witness, according to court documents. According to charging documents, officers forced entry into the apartment and found Stamper standing by a bedroom door without response.

When he was arrested, Stamper told officers he was acting in self-defense and told them: “There’s a gun on the floor.”

Police found Taima in a bedroom with injuries that appeared to be caused by blunt force trauma, including a gaping wound to the back of her head.

Investigators discovered an industrial-sized car bolt wrapped in a red strap that was believed to be the weapon used to kill Taima. A handgun was found on the floor several feet away with loaded ammunition in the magazine but not in the chamber.

A witness told police that she shares an apartment with Taima and that Stamper came to work with her while Taima was asleep. He said he gave her a set of keys and told her he was going to take a shower.

Five minutes after Stamper left, he told detectives, he heard screaming. She opened the bathroom door and closed the bedroom door to find Stamper at the door with “blood on his hands” before saying “everything is fine”.

She said she went to a neighbor’s and they returned to find the apartment locked, according to court documents.

Other witnesses said they went to confront Stamper and saw him briefly open the door to see him covered in blood. He allegedly told them not to contact the police.

Stamper refused to be interviewed by detectives outside of the presence of an attorney, according to court documents.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Stamper as of Thursday.
