The last homicide reported in Fayetteville was Aug. 5, 2012. Eric Thomas Frankenhauser, 41, is charged with capital murder in the death of 39-year-old Jessica Stewart. He also is charged with first-degree battery. Police said a neighbor found Stewart lying in the yard of 2228 W. Wedington Drive with a gunshot wound to the head. She died the next day at Washington Regional Medical Center. Washington County Circuit Judge William Storey last month set the trial to begin Sept. 16.
