Keokuk, IA (WGEM) — Court documents have been released for Adam McCain, the man accused of killing CaLove Sackman in Keokuk Tuesday night.

Documents show that at 10:27 p.m. Tuesday, Keokuk police responded to the 300-block of Main St. for a person who had been stabbed. Sackman was found lying on the sidewalk in the 200-block of Main St with multiple stab wounds to her torso area.

According to the documents, Sackman identified her assailant to a witness as being Adam McCain, who she was previously in a long term relationship with.

McCain was detained by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and interviewed on Wednesday morning, according to the documents. They state that McCain admitted to driving Sackman around in his vehicle and becoming upset with her, who jumped out of the vehicle and into the street.

The documents allege that McCain stabbed Sackman once. While Sackman was trying to get away from him, McCain got into his vehicle, drove to her, got out and stabbed her multiple more times. Sackman later died from her injuries.

McCain is charged with Murder in the First Degree and made his first court appearance Wednesday. His bond was set at $1,000,000.

Court records show that McCain’s next court appearance is scheduled for February 15, for a preliminary hearing in the South Lee County Courthouse in Keokuk.
