Suspect Charged With Trying to Kill Kansas Deputy

Associated Press - September 7, 2013 6:34 am

A man captured after a four-day search across southern Kansas has been charged with attempted capital murder in the shooting of a Butler County sheriff’s deputy.

Forty-one-year-old Jan Kilbourne made a first appearance Friday afternoon in Butler County District Court. The Wichita Eagle reports his court-appointed lawyer did not object when the state requested he be held on $1 million bond.

Kilbourne had been sought since early Monday, when the deputy was shot in the shoulder during a traffic stop near Augusta. The deputy is recovering at home.

Wichita police found Kilbourne around 3 a.m. Friday in a car outside a home. He was arrested without resistance.

The Butler County prosecutor cited Kilbourne’s previous criminal convictions in asking for the high bond.

Kilbourne declined to speak in court.
