ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – Court documents released Wednesday show that a 36-year-old man has been charged in the murder of a woman in St. Louis County.

Hosie Taylor has been charged with one count of first degree murder in the death of Deirdre Exum Friday. She was killed as a result of blunt force trauma and asphyxiation. Her home on Chesapeake was later set on fire.

Prosecutors say a witness saw Taylor leave Exum’s home at the time of the fire and that her blood was found inside Taylor’s car.

Hosie Taylor is being held on a $1,000,000 cash-only bond.
