17-year-old charged in Wichita couple’s death

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A 17-year-old suspect has been charged as a juvenile with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of a Wichita couple.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the teen is accused of killing 70-year-old Martha Moreno and her husband, 72-year-old Godofredo Moreno. Court records also show the teen faces an aggravated robbery charge.

The Morenos’ son found their bodies Oct. 16 on a bedroom floor of their home. Police said they had been shot multiple times and that the motive was robbery.

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old who was also arrested in the killings is being jailed on a warrant accusing him of violating his probation from a 2013 robbery. Records show the 19-year-old has not been charged with the killings and is no longer being held on suspicion of murder.
