Woman charged with murder in Wichita woman's shooting death


WICHITA, Kansas — A second person has been charged in the fatal shooting of a 66-year-old woman in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle ( ) reports that 22-year-old Brittany McDay is jailed on $250,000 bond on a charge of first-degree murder and several other crimes in the death of Jacquelyn Harvey. During a court appearance Monday, McDay told a judge she's unemployed.

Harvey's son found her dead on Sept. 16, when he was dropping off his son so Harvey could take him to school. Police say her purse and vehicle were stolen. McDay also is accused of trying to use Harvey's debit card to buy more than $1,000 worth of merchandise from Wal-Mart on or around Sept. 15.

A second person, 21-year-old Jacob Strouse, was charged last week with several charges in Harvey's death.
