A Columbia man is in police custody after allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death. 20 year old Jordan Kuykendall is accused of stabbing Erin Schneider multiple times in her torso and neck, the same day her order of protection against him might’ve become permanent. Schneider’s body was discovered last Thursday in a home on Riebeling Street.
The St. Louis Area Major Case Squad was called in last Thursday to investigate her death, which lead to charges against the former boyfriend. Police believe she went to the home willingly. The home belonged to Kuykendall's 25 year old brother, where both young men lived. The suspect was involved in a traffic crash Thursday just hours before the body was discovered. He is under police guard at a St. Louis area hospital. Schenider would’ve been a senior this fall at Columbia High School. Her funeral is today.
