Man Arrested in Dodge City Killing

KSCB News - September 27, 2014 4:03 pm

A 26-year-old man who was arrested after a police chase has been charged with killing a Dodge City woman.

The Ford County prosecutor charged Victor Gutierrez on Friday with first-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Natasha Pruitt and three other felonies.

Dodge City police and the Ford County Sheriff’s Department were called to a Dodge City home Monday afternoon on a report of an injured person. Officers say they found Pruitt dead at the home.

After authorities issued an all-points bulletin, Gutierrez was arrested Monday night. Gutierrez was released from state prison in January of 2013 after serving time for battering a corrections officer and was under parole supervision in Ford County.
