Murder, sodomy charges filed in death of woman killed day before her 25th birthday


Flanked by the tearful mother of murder victim Ashley Geddes, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced first-degree murder charges in the death of the 24-year-old woman.

“No mother should have found her daughter in the matter that I found my daughter,” Stacy Gicante said.

In addition to murder, prosecutors charged Cedric O. Russell, 25, with sodomy or attempted sodomy, first-degree burglary, stealing, tampering with a motor vehicle and tampering with physical evidence.

Kansas City police found Geddes June 1 when they went to a home in the 10500 block of East 45th Place on a reported ambulance call.

Fingerprints and evidence from Geddes’ residence led police to Russell, according to court records.

Russell allegedly told police he was choking the victim during sex and she stopped breathing, court records say. He allegedly told police he took her car, phone and jewelry and pawned her jewelry three days after her death.

Investigators used DNA and fingerprints collected at the crime scene to link Russell to the killing, according to court records.

Russell told investigators that he and Geddes had a sexual relationship for some time. Russell changed his story about their encounters and denied harming Geddes.
