Sheriff: 2 Accused in Kansas Triple Homicide on the Run

Associated Press - November 3, 2016 10:22 am

A woman who was taken into custody in connection with a central Kansas shooting that left four people dead has been released from custody.

Authorities in central Kansas are searching for two people now accused in connection with a triple homicide.

Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton says in a posting on his department’s Facebook page that 35-year-old Jereme Nelson and 31-year-old Myrta Rangel are charged in arrest warrants with capital murder and three counts of first-degree murder.

Their bond has been set at $1 million each, and the sheriff’s department believes they are in Oklahoma.

The bodies of 33-year-old Travis Street, 37-year-old Angela Graevs and the couple’s Newton friend, 52-year-old Richard Prouty were found Sunday outside a home in a rural area near Moundridge. The victims had been shot.

Harvey County Prosecuting Attorney David Yoder says the motive for the killings appears to be drug-related.
