Man charged in Wichita woman’s slaying

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 21-year-old man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a 66-year-old woman in Wichita.

Jacob Strouse made his first court appearance Wednesday and faces several charges including first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and criminal possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

According to authorities, Jacquelyn Harvey’s son found her dead on Sept. 16, when he was dropping off his son so Harvey could take him to school. Police say her purse and vehicle were stolen.

It was not immediately clear if Strouse has an attorney. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 7.

A 22-year-old woman is being sought by authorities in connection to the killing.
