KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An Overland Park man was charged Thursday in the slaying of his sister, who was found dead earlier this week in what police described as a domestic situation.
Parker John Mays, 27, was charged in Johnson County District Court with premeditated first-degree murder, District Attorney Steve Howe said Thursday.
His bond was set at $1 million. Mays will make his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. Friday.
On Tuesday afternoon, Overland Park police found Layne R. Mays dead inside a home in the 5500 block of West 148th Terrace.
Police spokesman John Lacy said Tuesday that her death appeared to be a domestic situation and that police had a suspect in custody and were not looking for anyone else.
Police did not say how Layne Mays died.
