A northeast Kansas man is charged with second-degree murder after a shooting at a rural home during the summer.
Doniphan County Sheriff Chad Clary says 25-year-old Eric Burge of Troy was arrested Tuesday in the death of 25-year-old Matthew Sollars of Atchison.
Burge also is charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm in an occupied dwelling and hosting a party with minors.
Clary says authorities were called to a home southwest of Troy in early August and found the man shot. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate the incident.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports Burge is being held on a $500,000 bond. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
