An Independence woman, charged with murdering her ex-husband, has pleaded not guilty, and a trial date has been set for next year.


32 year old Hillary Hunziker is accused of stabbing Jason Hunziker, after breaking into his Independence home on November 6th. The couple had been in a custody fight over their young child; after stabbing Jason, Hillary fled with the child, but was later found and arrested.

Jason sustained several stab wounds, and was pronounced dead from his injuries.

At a hearing in Buchanan County District Court on Tuesday, Hillary pleaded not-guilty to the first degree murder charge. Her trial was then set for January 10th.
