St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 07-18


A Warrenton woman charged with fatally stabbing her 85-year-old mother has been found unfit for trial and committed to a state mental hospital, court records say. Marlene Wynn, 52, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the stabbing death of her mother, Mildred Brune, in Warren County. Brune was found on the floor of Wynn’s home in the 700 block of Cambridge Drive on Sept. 17 after a caller reported finding two people were dead inside with a butcher knife nearby.
