TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A federal inmate has been charged with killing a man connected to the 2014 shooting death of a Kansas bride.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2afiI1X ) reports that 27-year-old Cortez Tyrell Timley was charged Wednesday with premeditated first-degree murder in the June 2014 shooting death of 26-year-old Jermel Robbins Sr. He doesn’t yet have an attorney.

Three weeks earlier, 42-year-old Tiffany Davenport-Ray was killed as she headed to her wedding reception when shots were fired from a sport utility vehicle in which three men were riding. Two men were convicted previously, and Robbins name surfaced as the third SUV occupant during their trials.

Timley pleaded guilty last year to a federal charge of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime. The offense occurred the same day Robbins was killed.
