NW Kansas man convicted of second-degree murder

OBERLIN, Kan. (AP) — A northwest Kansas man has been convicted of fatally shooting another man and wounding a woman as the couple slept.

Twenty-five-year-old Dylan Coryell, of Oberlin, will be sentenced in June following his conviction Wednesday on charges of intentional second-degree murder and aggravated battery. It was the first murder trial in Decatur County in more than a decade.

Coryell was charged with shooting 22-year-old Corey Cook, also of Oberlin, and a female acquaintance as they slept the morning of Oct. 16, 2011.

Witnesses testified Coryell had recently begun a relationship with the woman, who survived the shooting.

Prosecutors said both men had been drinking and exchanging hostile text messages in the hours before the killing.
