ST. JOSEPH, Missouri — A Kansas woman and two Missouri men have each been arraigned on a second-degree murder charge in the stabbing death of a man whose body was dumped in a river.

The St. Joseph News-Press (http://bit.ly/1bndYp8 ) reports that 43-year-old Kelli Hoard, 22-year-old Primalton Peterson III and 24-year-old Sean Liechti appeared in court Friday. Not guilty pleas were entered for all three.

The Elwood, Kansas, woman and two St. Joseph men are accused of killing 28-year-old Richard Berry. His body was found last Saturday in the Third Fork of the Platte River near Easton.

A probable cause statement alleges Hoard stabbed the victim with a knife, while the two men pinned Berry to the ground.

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for May 28.
