Ohio Fugitive, Wife Arrested in Kansas Motel

Associated Press - June 19, 2015 1:37 pm

Authorities say an Ohio couple possibly linked to a suspicious Florida death has been arrested at a motel in Kansas.

Craig Beam, chief deputy of the U.S. Marshal’s Kansas district, says Michael Douglas Evans and his wife, Kristy, were arrested Thursday evening at a Motel 6 in Hays.

The woman’s 7-year-old daughter was with them and has been placed in protective custody.

Michael Evans was wanted in Ohio for failure to appear in court on felony charges. The couple also is wanted for questioning in the death of 46-year-old Joseph Moniz at a Miami hotel in early June.

Beam says the couple was arrested without incident after Hays police spotted their vehicle and contacted the Marshal’s office. They are being held in the Ellis County jail awaiting an extradition hearing.
