TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The victim in a fatal weekend shooting in Topeka has been identified as a Wichita woman who had been married just hours earlier.

Police on Tuesday released the identity of 42-year-old Tiffany Davenport-Ray. She was shot about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at an intersection south of downtown Topeka and died several hours later at a hospital.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1rdC8sI ) a 30-year-old man arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder had his bond set at $1 million during a court appearance Tuesday. Police said earlier that officers who responded to the shooting also found a traffic accident had occurred.

A friend of the victim told the Capital-Journal that Davenport-Ray had lived in Wichita for the past 10 years working at Beechcraft and had just returned to Topeka for her wedding Saturday.
