The Kansas Attorney General’s Office says a man wanted in connection with two slayings has been killed in a shooting with authorities.
Thirty five year old Kevin Robert Welsh of Toronto, Kan., was being sought after the shootings earlier this month in Greenwood County, near the southeast Kansas town of Eureka.
The attorney general’s office says in a release that Welsh was wounded in a shooting with Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents Wednesday evening in Eureka. The release says he was later pronounced dead at a hospital in Eureka.
Welsh’s ex-girlfriend, Catherine Scheff, was seriously injured in the Oct. 2 shootings. Her 52 year old mother, Sheila Kriesel, and her 54 year old stepfather, Keith Kriesel, were both killed.
