GARDEN CITY, Kan. – The Finney County Attorney has charged a Garden City man with first-degree murder in the death of his sister.

Fifty-two-year-old Luis Montoya is scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday in the Aug. 24 death of 55-year-old Maria Montoya at their home. He’s being held at the Finney County Jail on a $800,000 bond.
