TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Federal officials say a woman has been arrested in California in a 2007 Kansas killing.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Jerry Viera says the 44-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday in Torrance, California, in the shooting death of 16-year-old Michael Torneden in Topeka. She is jailed in California on $250,000 bond.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1XmSSvX ) reports that several people were inside the house when Torneden was shot. His death was originally reported as a possible suicide but was ruled a homicide after an autopsy.

In 2013, three other people were found fatally shot inside the same house where Torneden died. A fourth victim of the 2013 shooting died after she was found in a nearby parking lot. No arrests have been made in that case.
