Man, 19, Charged In Wichita’s Latest Homicide
Prosecutors have charged a 19-year-old man in the fatal shooting of another man in Wichita.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Arturo Jesus Desantiago was charged this week in Sedgwick County District Court with second-degree intentional murder in the death of 19-year-old Samuel Meza. Authorities say Meza was shot in the hip on March 21 following what police have called a long-running gang feud. He died two days later.
Wichita police arrested Desantiago last Friday, and he is being held in Sedgwick County Jail in lieu of $350,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 12. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
