SALINA, Kansas – A third person has been charged in the 2013 death of a 27-year-old Salina woman.
Megan V. Wells is charged in Saline County with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. She’s being held on $1 million bond.
Two men, 25-year-old Joel Heil and 33-year-old Dane C. DeWeese, of Abilene, have pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Kristin Tyler, who was missing for two weeks before her body was found May 9 in rural Saline County.
DeWeese’s trial is set for March 24, and Heil’s trial is scheduled for May 7.
A lawyer for Wells didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
