3 charged in deadly Barton County shooting

Three people have been charged in the shooting death of a Great Bend man during a break-in.

Twenty-year-old Alejo Villegas, 22-year-old Juventino Villegas and Adam Eugene Suppes were charged last week with first-degree murder in the Nov. 15 shooting of Aron Villegas. The 23-year-old died at a Great Bend hospital.

The three Great Bend suspects also face charges that include aggravated burglary and criminal damage to property.

Alejo Villegas is jailed in Barton County and Juventino Villegas in Russell County on $1 million bond. Suppes was released after posting a $250,000 bond.

Suppes’s attorney didn’t immediately return a phone call. Barton County attorney Doug Matthews says he hasn’t been notified that the other two have attorneys.

The Great Bend Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation continue investigating.
