Murder charges filed

GUIDE ROCK — Twice, the knife plunged into her back.

Virginia "Ginger" Barone turned to face her attacker, but was unable to stop the onslaught.

Her attacker continued stabbing and stabbing. Twenty times, the knife impaled her chest and torso.

The 68-year-old Guide Rock woman dropped to the floor. Her body was dragged into a nearby room, leaving streaks of blood on the floor. Her body was covered with boards, as if to hide the once-vibrant woman.

Grisly details of the horrific killing on Oct. 4 in Guide Rock were listed in the arrest affidavit filed Thursday in Webster County Court.
