|Benedict had burns all over his body when arrested yesterday.|
Police and fire officials arrived to Woods' burning home yesterday around 6 a.m. to discover him already dead inside his Mehlville residence. The 40-year-old Woods had limited mobility due to a physical impairment and lived at the home at 140 Kinswood Lane alone.
Benedict, 38, of the 2800 block of McKelvey in Maryland Heights, was employed as Woods' caregiver. He reportedly stabbed Woods prior to setting the house on fire, according to court documents.
Benedict is being held without bond.
