A woman and two dogs were killed in a Kansas home and police said they have arrested a suspect.
Around 6 p.m. on March 21, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas responded to a home to check on the welfare of a resident, according to KSN.
Sheriff Rodger Soldan told KSN that deputies found the body of a 50-year-old woman and two dogs dead in the home. Officials did not say how the women died or a possible motive in the killing.
