A Kansas City man has been charged this evening for his role in causing injuries to a young woman whose body was found in a Grandview parking lot near a residence, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced this evening.

Tyheem V. Anderson faces three criminal felony counts: Assault 1st Degree, Armed Criminal Action and Kidnapping.*

According to court records filed today, the victim went to the defendant's house in Kansas City. The defendant told police he and victim had been in a long relationship. On Nov. 11, 2023, a witness called police and told them she had seen victim restrained in a surrender position. The following day officers were tipped that they could find the victim at another residence. Grandview officers responded and found the victim in a lot near the Grandview residence. She had suffered trauma, including stab and gunshot wounds.
