An adoptive father has died from injuries suffered in a double shooting that killed his wife and led to criminal charges against the couple’s son.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter has confirmed that 48-year-old Roger Bluml died Saturday morning. Bluml had been hospitalized since he and his wife, Melissa Bluml, each sustained a gunshot wound to the head at their Valley Center-area home on Nov. 15. Fifty-three-year-old Melissa Bluml died the next day.
Easter says investigators will be meeting with Sedgwick County prosecutors Monday to discuss amending charges against Blumls’ 18-year-old adopted son, Anthony Bluml, his 35-year-old biological mother, Kisha Schaberg of San Diego, and two of Anthony’s former classmates. Each of the co-defendants face charges that include first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
