EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — A 30-year-old man is jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused in last week’s shooting death of a woman in Emporia.
The Emporia Gazette reports that Lyon County prosecutors charged Sony Uk on Tuesday with first-degree murder.
During a brief court appearance Tuesday, a judge scheduled Uk to appear for a preliminary hearing April 12.
Authorities allege that Uk killed 38-year-old Mahogany Brooks last Thursday in an apartment building near Emporia State University.
A message left Tuesday with Uk’s attorney, Stephen Atherton, was not immediately returned.
