Guilty Verdict in Salina Murder Case

KSAL StaffApril 8, 2014

After deliberating for about two hours a jury finds an Abilene man guilty of a Salina murder. Jurors late Tuesday morning found Dane DeWeese guilty of 1st degree murder and guilty of conspiracy in connection with the disappearance and murder of Kristin Tyler.

The case began last Spring when Tyler disappeared on April 25th. Her body was discovered on May 9th, just west of Salina on Stimmel Road below Interstate 135. Numerous law enforcement officers had been searching the area, and a sheriff deputy on patrol made the discovery.

Shortly after the body was found police arrested Joel Heil and Dane DeWeese. Megan Wells was arrested on February 26th of this year.

Heil testified against DeWeese during the trial, and said he will plead guilty to 1st degree murder in the case.

A trial date for Wells, who is facing a conspiracy charge, has not yet been set.
