WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police have arrested a 33-year-old man in connection with the fatal shootings in January of another man and a woman in a hotel.

The police department said the suspect returned Thursday to Wichita to be booked into the Sedgwick County jail after being arrested outside the U.S. Police said he was arrested on potential charges of capital murder, illegal firearm possession, aggravated burglary and aggravated assault.

His case is now in the hands of the Sedgwick County district attorney.

The suspect was arrested in connection with the deaths of 27-year-old George Kirksey and 22-year-old Alicia Roman. Both were from Wichita, as is the suspect.

Police said they were called to the hotel early Jan. 2 and found the two victims with multiple gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

A statement from the police department Friday said the shootings were “not a random incident” but did not provide further details.

Kansas law allows the state to impose the death penalty for two or more killings during a single event.
