Jackson County prosecutors have charged a 35-year-old Kansas City woman in the death of her 6-year-old son.
Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said Tasha Haefs was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Kansas City police were called to the 7300 block of Indiana Avenue on a reported disturbance. According to court documents, officers arrived and found what appeared to be blood on the front steps. The officers determined a woman was inside but she refused to answer the door.
Officers also saw what appeared to be a severed head inside near the home’s entrance.
“They saw what appeared to be a blood trail to the front door and they looked in and saw something very disturbing,” Baker said.
Court records said that officers forced their way inside. Investigators said the woman had apparent blood on her and two knives were seen in the home, court documents stated.
“Because she was in such extreme mental distress, she did a series of things that were very disturbing,” Baker said.
Police identified the boy as Karvel Stevens.
No other children were found inside. A dog was also found dead in the home.
The Haefs allegedly told detectives the victim was her biological child. According to court records, Haefs allegedly admitted to killing the boy.
“Anytime it’s a child, it just takes on a different depth of despair,” Baker said.
Prosecutors asked that Haefs be held on no bond.
Baker released the following statement after charges were filed:
“The community now knows some of the terrible details of the death of this 6-year-old child. It takes our breath away. My office, as it always has, pledges to do everything in its power to bring justice in this young boy’s murder. We will not shrink from our responsibility.
“It’s difficult to imagine the grief for this boy’s family. For the child’s classmates. His friends. Neighbors. The first responders who went to this crime scene.
“I expect it leaves us not knowing what to do. We might look at our loved ones today and give some thanks to God or even say a prayer. Thank you, my child is safe today. But we want everyone’s children to be safe.
“We’ve announced today that the child’s mother is charged with Murder in the First Degree of her 6-year-old son and Armed Criminal Action.* She is being held in the Jackson County Detention Center and her bond request was “no bond.”
“It can’t stop there.
“This child’s death is a call for something more. Our community must heed the call. Law enforcement, prosecutors, public health officials, social service providers, all of our many partners must work together to address the violence. Strong collaborations are needed to lean into this difficult challenge, and better protect our community’s most vulnerable population, our kids.
“Regarding this case, we will review our systems and responses to examine more deeply if any opportunities for intervention were missed. But I should stress that we don’t know of any failed processes, and we acknowledge that one may not exist. This type of review, though, could produce a valuable lesson from this horrible event, something that might prevent future harm.
“Let’s also focus, Kansas City, on the violence among us. It’s a challenge we can no longer ignore. We cannot become complacent with 180 or 170 or even 150 homicides per year and hundreds more shot but not killed. We’ve seen the horror that can occur when we don’t work together to help our community members avoid a future of violence.
“Going forward let’s keep a clear goal: Reduce our community’s violence and alert mental health professionals whenever we are aware of someone in need of intervention.

We don’t yet know why an elementary school aged child was killed this morning, but we understand the pain a family, school, and community are facing. May we see that the assailants are swiftly brought to justice and may we resolve to avoid more preventable tragedies like this.— Mayor Q (@QuintonLucasKC) February 16, 2022
