WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man in the killing of the owner of a popular Wichita eatery.

Wichita police Lt. Todd Ojile says the man is being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder after confessing to killing 45-year-old Tanya Tandoc. The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1MdDWbg) reports that police plan to present their case to prosecutors on Monday.

Police went to Tandoc’s home late Thursday after receiving a 911 call from a friend who told dispatchers he had been unable to reach Tandoc for about 24 hours. Her body was found in the basement, and Ojile said she appeared to have been dead for several hours. Ojile wouldn’t discuss a possible motive.

As word spread, notes and flowers began accumulating at her home and restaurant, Tanya’s Soup Kitchen.
