KC man facing multiple charges in homicide at 60th and Benton

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City man has been charged in the fatal shooting this week of a woman, prosecutors say.

Ashley Roberts’ body was found on the  front porch of a residence in the 6000 block of S. Benton Avenue, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced Saturday.

Dimitri Tinsley, 26, faces charges of second-degree murder, armed criminal action, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Police said just before 10 a.m. Friday, Roberts was found dead inside the home near 60th Street and S. Benton.

Neighbors heard arguing going on inside the residence, but weren’t certain if the woman lived there.

Prosecutors requested a $500,000 cash bond.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help support Roberts’ two daughters.
