NEOSHO, Missouri — A 25-year-old woman will stand trial for second-degree murder for her alleged role in the stabbing death of a man at a mobile home park near Joplin.

A judge ruled Tuesday that Bobbie Joe McKinney of Joplin should stand trial for second-degree murder, hindering prosecution and tampering with a vehicle in the Feb. 22 stabbing death of 30-year-old Trevor Webb.

Authorities allege McKinney was with Ryan Smith, of Joplin, when Smith stabbed Webb in the chest with a pocketknife. The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1JqpWdn ) a probable-cause affidavit says they took a significant amount of cash and drugs from Webb and fled in a stolen van.

Smith is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. He waived a preliminary hearing in March and is awaiting trial.
