KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 58-year-old convicted killer from northwestern Missouri is charged in the death of a Missouri Air National Guard member who was stabbed in what authorities are calling a road rage incident.
Jackson County authorities charged Nicholas Webb, of Pleasant Hill, with second-degree murder and armed criminal action on Thursday.
Authorities allege he stabbed 23-year-old Cody Harter, of St. Joseph, on Saturday after a confrontation along a highway in the Kansas City suburb of Lee’s Summit.
The Kansas City Star reports Webb was convicted of second-degree murder in Jackson County in 1981 and was in and out of prison with parole violations. He was last released from prison in July.
As a member of the Air National Guard, Harter did a tour in Iraq and served in Qatar, and helped with hurricane relief in Houston and Puerto Rico.
Harter’s funeral is scheduled for Friday.
