LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The lawyer for a 19-year-old Kansas woman accused of killing her 52-year-old housemate says his client doesn't deny killing the man.

Sarah B. Gonzales McLinn is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Harold Sasko, who was found dead Jan. 17 after police went to the home the two shared and after McLinn's family reported her missing.

McLinn appeared with her lawyer, Carl Cornwell, on Thursday in Douglas County District Court, where a preliminary hearing was set for May 16.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Cornwell said after the hearing that McLinn has never denied killing Sasko. Cornell says understanding why the crime happened is another matter.

McLinn has been in Douglas County Jail on a $1 million bond since being extradited from Florida last month.
