KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two women face charges after a man’s body was found in a wooded area of Kansas City, Missouri.

The Kansas City Star reports that officers were initially called Oct. 26 after a city worker discovered a body while looking into illegal dumping activity.

In federal court records, a detective said the body was found in a plastic container, “wrapped in black tape.” The death was ruled a homicide. The victim was later identified as 56-year-old Malvin Wallace.

Michele Props, of Gardner, Kansas, was charged Oct. 29 with abandonment of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence in felony prosecution, which are both felonies. Two days later, Kaitlyn Andes of Kansas City faced the same charges.
