Trial Set in Killing of Fort Riley Soldier

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2013

A November trial has been set for a Manhattan man charged with killing a Fort Riley soldier and wounding four other people earlier this year.

Forty-three-year-old Matthew Wilson appeared Monday in Riley County District Court on one count of first-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder. A judge entered not guilty pleas after Wilson stood silent.

Wilson is accused of bursting into a Manhattan apartment the morning of April 7 and fatally shooting 22-year-old Army Sgt. Michael Lowery. A second soldier and two women who were in the apartment were shot and wounded.

Authorities said the two soldiers rented the unit at the University Gardens Apartments complex, where Wilson also lived.

Wilson remains in the Riley County Jail pending trial scheduled for the week of Nov. 18.
