Suspect in quadruple murder in Parsons, Kan., in custody

INDEPENDENCE, Kan. - Authorities say a suspect sought in the deaths of a Kansas mother and her three young children has been captured after a manhunt.

The Kansas attorney general's office says in a statement that the 22-year-old suspect was taken into custody Tuesday evening in Independence. No charges have been filed and the statement didn't identify the suspect or give details of the capture after a search that focused on the Independence area.

The bodies of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger, of Parsons, and her three children had been found earlier on Tuesday. Authorities have not said how they were killed.

Funeral services are planned Monday in Thayer for Umbarger, 9 year-old-Hollie Betts, 6-year-old Jaxon Betts and 4-year-old Averie Betts.
