Kansas woman sentenced in brother’s death

EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas woman was sentenced to more than nine years in prison for killing her brother and leaving his body in the backyard of her home.

Fifty-five-year-old Susan L. May was sentenced Wednesday to nine years and one month in prison for killing her 55-year-old brother, Richard Hrejsa. His decomposing body was found last October in the backyard of May’s rural Butler County home. Authorities believe he was killed about a month earlier.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1jXqLLz ) May was originally charged with first-degree murder but pleaded guilty in January to reckless second-degree murder. Two counts of interference with law enforcement and one count of criminal desecration of a body were dropped as part of the plea deal.
