Latrelle Praylow, 31, was charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated robbery, and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon in the death of Christopher McMillon, The Topeka Capital-Journal reports.

A family member found McMillon, who was 38, dead in his home October 3 while checking to see why he failed to appear at a youth basketball game.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots earlier that day.

A second suspect, 27-year-old Tishara Moran, 27, is jailed on $1 million bond on charges of first-degree felony murder and aggravated robbery in the killing.

Authorities also are seeking a third person for questioning in the case.

Kansas Department of Corrections records show Praylow has past Shawnee County convictions for forgery, theft, and the criminal possession of a weapon.
