The two suspects in Wichita's most recent homicide were arrested in a small northwest Kansas town after a woman recognized one of them as they tried to break into a neighbor's house, police said today.
The caller recognized Amy Newell from photos released by Wichita police, Lt. Ken Landwehr said.
Newell and Shannondoa Hutchinson, 37, were arrested without incident by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper and a Norton County Sheriff's deputy as they were leaving the targeted house in Edmond, which is about 70 miles northwest of Hays.
They have been linked to the shooting death of 24-year-old John Delgado, 24, who died at Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis after being shot during a drug deal involving meth on Tuesday night.
A 34-year-old man also shot during the incident was released from a local hospital on Thursday, Landwehr said.
Hutchinson lives in Council Grove and Newell, 33, lives in the Emporia area. They are expected to make their first court appearance on Monday, Landwehr said.
