Arrests Made in Salina Homicide


SALINA, Kan. (AP) A second suspect has been arrested in the death of a 27-year-old Salina woman.

The Salina Journal reports officers arrested Dane C. Deweese, 33, of Abilene, on Wednesday. He’s charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kristin Tyler.

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

Salina police Lt. Scott Siemsen says police also expect more arrests in connection with the case.

Joel M. Heil was charged earlier with first-degree murder in Tyler’s death and is expected to appear in court Friday for scheduling. He’s being held on $1 million bond.
