HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A prosecutor in central Kansas is seeking to try a 17-year-old boy as an adult in a fatal shooting case.

The Hutchinson News reports that McPherson County Attorney Greg Benefiel made the motion Thursday at a hearing in McPherson County District Court. The teenager has been charged with first-degree murder, burglary, theft and possession of stolen property in connection with the Monday shooting at Mustang Mobile Park in McPherson.

Police found 22-year-old Jordan Krell dead in an empty lot of an apparent gunshot wound. Krell’s funeral services are set for next week.

The teen is being held without bond and is represented by Geoffrey Harrison, an attorney with McDonald Law.

A hearing to decide on Benefiel’s motion is set for June 29.
