PLEASONTON, Kan. (AP) – The state has charged a 31-year-old Kansas man with the killing of two of his relatives.

The Kansas Attorney General announced Tuesday that David Patrick McNabb of Pittsburg is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, felony theft and interference with law enforcement.

He is suspected of killing his 65-year-old uncle, Kenneth McNabb, and 87-year-old Betty McNabb, Kenneth’s mother.

They were reported missing Nov. 11 from their home in Pleasonton in Linn County. Their bodies were found buried on rural property west of Pittsburg Nov. 15.

The complaint alleges that David McNabb killed the two victims on or near Nov. 7 and later stole a 2013 Buick Enclave that belonged to Kenneth McNabb. He also is charged with lying to a Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent about the case.
