PARSONS, Kan. (AP) — The man suspected in the deaths of a southeast Kansas woman and her three children is being held on a $5 million bond.
Labette District Judge Robert Fleming signed an order Wednesday that gives prosecutors until Dec. 10 to file charges against the 22-year-old man who was arrested late Tuesday. He was arrested late Tuesday in connection with the killing of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger and her children, ages 9, 6, and 4.
It was unknown whether the man had an attorney. The Labette County Jail declined to make him available for comment.
Cami Umbarger's cousin, Tara Umbarger of Fredonia, said Wednesday that her cousin met the suspect around the end of September and had gone out with him a couple of times. She says he had been stalking her.
