Reno County officials say a second county resident has died after contracting the West Nile virus and they are investigating other cases.

The wife of 75-five-year-old Jim Hendrickson says he died Tuesday after more than four weeks in the hospital. The other known victim, 67-year-old Jim Geesling of Turon, died Oct. 3 at a Wichita hospital.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said this week Reno County had three confirmed West Nile cases as of Tuesday. The number of confirmed cases statewide is up to 45, with two confirmed deaths.

The Reno County Health Department says it’s investigating new cases this week but declined to give a specific number.
