OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – A suburban Kansas City man has been charged in a woman’s death.

The Kansas City Star reports that the premeditated first-degree murder charge was filed Wednesday against 37-year-old Christopher Duane Wallace, of Overland Park. Bond is set at $1 million. Defense attorney Carl Cornwell didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

He is accused of killing 35-year-old Jennifer Lopez, whose body was found late Monday inside a Mission apartment. Court documents do not say how Lopez was killed.

Wallace was detained at the scene and later arrested in connection with the homicide.

Overland Park police described Wallace and Lopez as acquaintances.
