Fatal Chase Prompts Murder Charge

KSAL StaffJanuary 9, 2014

A Wichita man is charged with second-degree murder after a police chase led to an accident that killed a 34-year-old woman.

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged 23-year-old Javier Rizo in the Oct. 27 death of Maria Martinez. She was in a vehicle that was hit by a van allegedly driven by RIzo while it was fleeing from police. Investigators say the van ran a stop sign and hit Martinez’s vehicle.

The van drove away. Rizo was arrested on Sunday after police received an anonymous tip. Other people in the van had already been arrested

Rizo is being held in Sedgwick County Jail on $500,000 bond while awaiting a preliminary hearing.
