Prosecutor: Death penalty possible for slayings’ suspects

KSAL StaffJanuary 21, 2017

A Kansas prosecutor says the death penalty “is on the table” in the case of two people who investigators say fled to Mexico as suspects in a triple homicide last October.

Harvey County prosecutors have charged 35-year-old Jereme Nelson and 31-year-old Myrta Rangel each with one count of capital murder and three counts of first-degree murder.

Nelson and Rangel were arrested earlier this month in Mexico and were returned to the U.S., where they remain jailed in California and await extradition to Kansas.

Authorities have said the bodies of 33-year-old Travis Street and 37-year-old Angela May Graevs, both of Moundridge, and 52-year-old Richard Prouty of Newton, were found Oct. 30 outside a rural home near Moundridge. An 18-month-old child was found unharmed.

It’s unclear if Nelson and Rangel have attorneys.
