COLDWATER, Kan. (AP) - A 42-year-old western Kansas man has been charged in a fatal shooting.

The Kansas attorney general’s office said Tuesday that Frank Domingo Asebedo Jr. of Protection has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 43-year-old Lelyn P. Betts of Garden City. Asebedo also was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm because he has two previous aggravated assault convictions. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says that Comanche County Sheriff’s Office and Coldwater Police Department received a call late Friday and found Betts dead. The KBI says Asebedo was identified as a suspect over the weekend and was arrested in Protection.

The KBI says his first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday in Comanche County.
