Nashville, Kan-- Residents of Nashville, in Kingman County say 57 year-old Curtis Shelton's son works with the murder suspect 46 year-old Dean Cowles in a nearby town. Sheriff's deputies found Shelton shot to death in his home Friday morning. The sheriff is not releasing any more information on a possible motive.
"It's awful, but a sign of the times," said Nashville resident Christa Lawrence. "People get angry over certain issues. It had to be an issue. It could have not have been a random act."
Cowles is being held on a $750,000 bond. He's expected to be formally charged later this week.
