2 Arkansas women arrested in Missouri slaying

— Two Arkansas women have been arrested in the shooting and stabbing death of a man in southwest Missouri.

Douglas County, Mo., Sheriff Chris Degase says 32-year-old April Quick and her roommate — 29-year-old Aimee Herring — were arrested Wednesday in Mountain Home for first-degree murder. The Baxter Bulletin reports both are being held without bond in the Baxter County Detention Center pending extradition.

Records did not show an attorney for either woman.

Degase said they’re suspected of killing 43-year-old Phillip Taylor of Macomb, Mo., at a roadside park near Ava, Mo., on Friday.

Degase said Taylor was trying to gain visitation rights to three children he fathered with Quick and had agreed to meet the women at the park to discuss the children.
