According to Polk County Sheriff Danny Morrison, law enforcement has obtained warrants for Kaleb Tyrel Stamper, born in 1986, for felony first-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree burglary. 

Stamper is considered homeless, Morrison said.

He is being held in Polk County Jail on $1 million cash or surety bond. 

While Morrison did not share the victim's name, he said she was a 57-year-old woman from Humansville.

Morrison said Stamper is also held on a capias warrant for a probation violation. 

Because the probable cause statement is not yet available from the Polk County Circuit Court, details of the crime are not available at this time.
