Posted by Eagle Staff on February 14, 2013

Three months after a woman’s body was found at an eastern Missouri motel, a Columbia man is charged in the crime.

52-year-old Curtis Smith of Columbia is already in prison for second-degree murder for another killing. Now, he is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kristi Murphy. Her body was found in a bathtub at the Microtel Motel in Ste. Genevieve on Nov. 17. Smith was on parole at the time of her death. Smith is now jailed on $250,000 bond.
