Second person arrested in Christmas Day killing of Junction City mother

Authorities say a second person has been arrested in the Christmas Day killing of a mother of two in Kansas.

Junction City police say 33-year-old Mashaun Jay Baker was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of capital murder in the death of 31-year-old Jenna Schafer.  Police Capt. Trish Giordano says Schafer was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound around 9:30 a.m. on December 25th in an apartment.  Her obituary said she had two daughters.

Police previously arrested 33-year-old Dion Green, of Junction City, on suspicion of first-degree murder.  Neither man has been charged.

Baker was scheduled to make a first appearance Thursday afternoon, and doesn’t yet have an attorney.  Green’s attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message.

Giordano says the children are safe and can’t comment further.
