Garden City Man Pleads In Colby Murder

KSCB News - July 2, 2014 12:41 pm

A Garden City man charged with a Colby murder today pleaded guilty to charges against him, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

William Andrew Shank, 25, pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree premeditated murder, aggravated arson and aggravated burglary. The charges stemmed from the February 2013 death of 27-year-old Teri L. Morris in Colby. Chief Judge Glenn D. Schiffner accepted Shank’s plea and scheduled sentencing for September 10 at 9 a.m.

The case was investigated by the Colby Police Department, Thomas County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Fire Marshal, Kansas Highway Patrol and Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorneys General Jessica Domme and Nicole Romine of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
