Three people have now been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Brandon Lee Shelby, a 29-year-old from Salina.
Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that the third person arrested is 34-year-old, Brandon Lee St Clair, also from Salina.
St Clair has been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated kidnapping and possession of drugs and paraphernalia.
St Clair now joins Charles Henry Rodgers and James Ervin Pavey, who were both arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
All three were arrested in Salina.
The Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Salina Police Department and Kansas Bureau of Investigation have all collaborated in the murder investigation that began on Tuesday morning when Shelby’s body was discovered east of the North St. Smoky Hill river bridge, just one mile east of the Salina city limits.
Soldan says that the investigation into the alleged murder continues, however, he does not anticipate any more arrests made in connection to this case.
