KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a Kansas man with first-degree murder who they say shot and killed a woman in a Lowe’s Home Improvement store parking lot.

Wyandotte County prosecutors say 28-year-old George Lingenfelser killed 29-year-old Janet Billings on Sunday. He was charged Tuesday after turning himself in on Sunday.

Kansas City, Kansas, police say Billings and Lingenfelser are from Bonner Springs and knew each other. Their relationship is unclear. Officers found Billings’ body in the parking lot.

Lingenfelser is being held on $750,000 bond at the county jail. Online jail records didn’t indicate an attorney.
