Trial to begin for Salina Murder

SALINA, Kan. (AP) Two men will stand trial for first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of a 27-year-old Salina woman.

Joel Heil, 25, and Dane DeWeese, 33, of Abilene, were bound over for trial Monday in the death of Kirstin Tyler.

The mother of four was missing two weeks before her body was found May 9 in a ravine off Interstate 135 in rural Saline County.

The Salina Journal reports the men are expected to enter a plea during arraignment Jan. 10.
