TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Bond has been set at $1 million for a man who police say was running around bloodied, naked and screaming outside the Topeka home where his girlfriend’s body was found.
The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1usEG7w ) reports the suspect in the death of 22-year-old Lacie Atchison appeared Thursday in Shawnee County Circuit Court. Judge Steve Ebberts told a prosecutor the district attorney’s office would have until Monday afternoon to file charges.
For now, the suspect is being held on suspicion of premeditated first-degree murder, child endangerment, misdemeanor battery and criminal restraint.
After neighbors called Wednesday to report the nude man, police used a stun gun to subdue the suspect and then found Atchison’s body. Officers also took an uninjured child from the home and placed her in protective custody.
