The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a 15-year-old boy is the fifth suspect to be arrested in the killing of a 78-year-old man at his home in the southeast Kansas town of Eureka.
Officials say the teen was arrested Monday afternoon on suspicion of felony murder, aggravated burglary, felony theft and conspiracy to commit felony theft.
Four others were earlier charged with the same counts in the killing of Danny Shue.
Deputies found Shue’s body on Aug. 19 during a welfare check at his home.
The KBI has not released details about Shue’s death.
