KSAL Staff - April 13, 2017 1:00 pm

The Douglas County district attorney has charged a woman with first-degree murder after a 9-month-old child died last year at a day care in Eudora.

A man from Mexico is facing a federal gun charge in a Lincoln County case.

According to U.S. Attorney Tom Beall, 28-year-old Cesar Humberto Melandez-Morales, a citizen of Mexico, is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm while in the United States. The crime is alleged to have occurred April 5th in Lincoln County.

If convicted, Melandez-Morales faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.

The Kansas Highway Patrol and ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brent Anderson is prosecuting.
