McPherson Murder Details Released

Associated Press - May 5, 2017 2:59 pm

Police have released details in the killing of a central Kansas man last month.

25-year-old Travis Belt has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of 58-year-old Steven Carlson.

A probable cause affidavit released Wednesday says Belt was given permission to use Carlson’s truck the day before police found his body. The affidavit alleges Belt used the truck to steal a knife and other items from a Wal-Mart.

Police say they found Carlson’s body April 14, after his friend called 911 saying it was unusual his garage door was open. Carlson’s white truck was missing.

Belt’s preliminary hearing is scheduled to start July 17.
