Suspect arrested for shooting charged after Missouri standoff
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A 46-year-old man faced murder charges Friday in the shooting death of his employer in Kansas City, Kansas.
The Kansas City Star reports Willie E. Parker was charged in Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree murder in the July 28 shooting death of 54-year-old Michel Ziade of Lee's Summit.
Parker was an employee of the medical transport company that Ziade owned. The shooting occurred in a parking lot near the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.
Parker was taken into custody in Missouri on Thursday evening after a five-hour standoff with police and waived his right to fight extradition back to Kansas during a brief court hearing Friday.
Parker was expected to be returned to Wyandotte County later Friday. It was unclear if Parker had a lawyer Friday morning.
