COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) - A 19-year-old rural Columbus man has been charged in the shooting death of a 20-year-old man.

The Parsons Sun reports (https://bit.ly/X6OKoD ) that Cherokee County authorities have charged Skyler C. Gurnee with one count of premeditated first-degree murder in the death of William “Joey” Stephens.

Sheriff’s deputies found Stephens’ body Monday morning in Hallowell. Deputies also found Gurnee several blocks away suffering from severe injuries that the sheriff said were not gunshots.

Gurnee was hospitalized until Tuesday is now being held without bond in the Cherokee County Jail. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
