EUREKA, Kan. (AP) -- Eureka High School's tiny auditorium was packed as the community said goodbye to a couple who were killed in their rural Greenwood County home by a man who also is believed to have shot and wounded their 26-year-old daughter.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/16Ga0Dh) reports law enforcement officers kept close watch Saturday at the funeral for Keith and Sheila Kriesel, who were fatally shot Oct. 2. A man sought in connection with the shootings, 35-year-old Kevin Welsh, remains at large.

Family members say 52-year-old Sheila Kriesel had worked for the Greenwood County Attorney's Office, while 54-year-old Keith Kriesel was a jailer for the county sheriff's office and drove a school bus.

The state has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to Welsh's capture.
