A Garden City man has been formally charged in the death of a Colby woman earlier this month.

Monday, 24-year-old William Andrew Shank was formally charged with first-degree murder, aggravated arson and aggravated burglary.

The body of 27-year-old Teri L. Morris was found inside her burning home on February 9th. She was transported to a local hospital where she died a short time later.
