OLATHE, Kan. (AP) An Olathe man will stand trial for first-degree murder in the death of his wife’s live-in caretaker.
Fifty-nine-year-old Stephen M. Collier was ordered Monday to stand trial in the December death of 54-year-old Susanne Goslin.
Collier pleaded not guilty. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 6.
Goslin, a registered nurse, died from a gunshot wound to the head. She had been hired to care for Collier’s wife at their home in Olathe.
The Kansas City Star reports Collier’s wife found Goslin’s body Dec. 28. She testified at the preliminary hearing that she saw her husband with a gun in his hand that day and that he fired a shot into the floor.
Collier did not testify during the hearing.
Collier is being held on $750,000 bond.
