ARMA, Kan. — An Arma man is convicted in a 2019 stabbing that left his wife dead and seriously injured a second woman, her grandmother.

34-year-old Jeremy Delmarco entered a no contest plea Tuesday in Crawford County District Court. He was charged with second degree murder, attempted murder, and resisting arrest.

Those charges stem from an incident on February 4, 2019 where authorities say Delmarco stabbed his 37-year-old wife Brandy and her grandmother, Dorma Lemaster. Brandy died of her injuries.

Delmarco is scheduled to be sentenced June 30th.

The crime occurred at the Lemaster residence in Arma at 423 North Hwy 69. As the first officer arrived both of the victims were outside with visible stab wounds from being assaulted.

Delmarco has a long criminal history in McDonald County, Missouri, where he served time in the Department of Corrections for multiple Felony convictions dating back to 2003 including firearm theft, vehicle theft, burglary, DWI, DWR, etc.
