TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Three more people are now charged in connection with last week’s killing of a Topeka woman.
Ashley Alcala, a 34-year-old mother of two, died after being found severely injured in her home last Thursday. Her husband, Manuel Campos Alcala, is being held on $1 million bond on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports two 19-year-old men and a 58-year-old woman from Texas have now been charged with felony first-degree murder and conspiracy in the death. They’re being held in El Paso County, Texas, on other charges.
The charge of felony first-degree murder applies to murders committed during some other, dangerous felony. Authorities have not disclosed the alleged underlying felony against the three new suspects.
