OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors in Kansas’ Johnson County have charged a 22-year-old man with capital murder and rape in connection with last month’s death of a woman whose body was found this week.

Prosecutors charged Korrey Raine White Rinke of Ottawa, Kansas, on Thursday in the death of 46-year-old Julianna Pappas. Her body was found late Wednesday in a wooded area of Overland Park. She was last seen Aug. 22.

Court records do not indicate how Pappas was killed.

During Rinke’s initial court appearance Thursday, an attorney from the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit was appointed to represent him. His next court date is scheduled for Wednesday.
