TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A man already charged with killing a man connected to the shooting death of a Kansas bride has been charged in another killing.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 27-year-old Cortez Tyrell Timley was served Thursday with a warrant charging him with the second slaying. No details were provided.

In July, Timley was charged with first-degree murder in the June 2014 shooting death of 26-year-old Jermel Robbins Sr.

Three weeks before Robbins’ death, 42-year-old Tiffany Davenport-Ray was killed when shots were fired from a sport utility vehicle in which three men were riding. Two men were convicted previously, and Robbins name surfaced as the third SUV occupant during their trials.

Attorney Matt Works is representing Timley in the Robbins’ homicide but said he had no information about the latest case.
