WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a suspect in a deadly 2014 shooting in Wichita in which another man was previously charged.
Sedgwick County booking reports show that police arrested 57-year-old James Leon Edwards on Sunday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Nathaniel Jackson. His bond is set at $500,000.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Michael Davis was originally charged with first-degree murder in Jackson’s death.
