KC man charged in killing of woman found in trash

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A 50-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in the murder Friday evening of a Nevada, MO, woman who was living in Kansas City at the time.

The Jackson County Prosecutor's office said Quelin E. Perciado, Jr. faces a second-degree murder charge.

Court documents said witnesses saw 40-year-old Wanda K. Benenhaley at Perciado's home Friday night while they all drank together. Witnesses told police they saw him strangle and hit Benenhaley, then put her body in a trash can and drag it across the street.

Benenhaley's body was found near Poplar Avenue and 23rd Street in an alley Friday not far off from the sidewalk, according to police,.

The following day police identified the person as Benenhaley. Benenhaley is from Nevada, MO, but was living in Kansas City, MO, at the time of her death.

It wasn't a 911 call that alerted police to the body. A woman walked into the East Patrol Division station seven blocks away shortly before 7 p.m. Friday and said there was a body at 23rd and Poplar, down an alley. She told police she was drinking with Benenhaley and Perciado when she saw Perciado hold Benenhaley down on the floor and start strangling and hitting her.

After Perciado thought Benenhaley was dead, the woman told police he put her body in a trash can and dragged the trash can to a white vacant home across the street.

Friday night, police said they were not aware of any recent emergency calls about a disturbance or shots fired or the type of thing people might connect to a violent death.

"They're going to be doing an area canvas. They do that anyway, just to check and see if anybody's seen or heard anything tonight and, in those situations, we also call on the public. This is a busy street here, 23rd street. If anyone has heard or seen anything, we urge them to call the TIPS Hotline," Sgt. Stacey Graves with the Kansas City, MO, Police Department said.

Court documents said a medical examiner ruled that Benenhaley died due to strangulation.

Police found Perciado Saturday in Blue Spring, MO, where he was taken into custody.

Prosecutors requested Perciado's bond be set at $250,000 cash.
