4th Arrest Made in Shelby Murder

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2017

Authorities have charged a fourth man in connection to the murder of Brandon Lee Shelby back in June.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that investigators from his office and agents with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation met with 20-year-old Austin Ray Bott on Saturday at the jail, after he was picked up by police for failure to appear on a municipal court violation.

Soldan says through those interviews, authorities learned enough to allege that Bott was involved in the murder of Brandon Shelby on June 6, 2017.

Shelby’s body was discovered east of the North Street bridge over the Smoky Hill River, one mile east of the Salina city limits.

Bott joins three other men who have been charged in with first degree murder; Charles Henry Rodgers, James Ervin Pavey and Brandon Lee St Clair.

Bott is also facing possible charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary.
