A Kansas woman has been accused of killing her father after she was discovered covered in blood in his apartment.
Jennifer Jackson is now facing charges of premeditated first-degree murder, aggravated burglary and criminal threat after the body of Charles Jackson was discovered Sunday.
Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay said in a statement sent by Oxygen.com that police were called to Charles Jackson’s downtown Topeka apartment after receiving reports of a woman covered in blood outside the residence saying that her father had been killed.
At the scene, Kagay said police discovered trails of blood outside the apartment and found Charles Jackson inside. He was pronounced dead at the scene, although authorities did not provide any details about how he was killed.
Authorities believe Charles Jackson had been the only person who was living in the apartment, Kagay said.
Police also found Jennifer Jackson in the apartment covered in blood. She was immediately taken into custody at the scene, Kagay said in the statement.
The latest charges come just days after Jennifer was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal trespass at her father’s apartment on Friday, according to the statement from the district attorney's office.
Authorities did not provide any information about a possible motive in the case.
Topeka Police Lt. Manuel Munoz declined to release any additional information about the case to Oxygen.com citing the ongoing investigation.
Jennifer is currently being held on a $1 million bond.
The case remains under investigation by the Topeka Police Department. Anyone with information about the crime, is urged to contact authorities.
