2nd suspect arrested in Salina homicide

SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A second suspect has arrested in the death of a 27-year-old Salina woman.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17oOqk1 ) law enforcement officers arrested the second suspect Wednesday in the death of Kristin Tyler. The mother of four was missing two weeks before her body was found May 9 in a ravine off Interstate 135 in rural Saline County.

Salina police Lt. Scott Siemsen says the suspect was arrested Wednesday evening in Abilene. It's unclear if the suspect has been formally charged. Siemsen also says police expect more arrests in connection with the case.

Joel M. Heil was charged earlier with first-degree murder in Tyler's death and is expected to appear in court Friday for scheduling. He's being held on $1 million bond.
