September 11, 2019

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man accused of beating another man in a Wichita grocery store parking lot has been charged with second-degree murder after the victim died from his injuries two weeks after the attack.

Thirty-five-year-old Steven Speakman made his first appearance Tuesday in Sedgwick County District Court. His bond was set at $250,000.

He has been in custody since Aug. 21, when police say a fight broke out between Speakman and 33-year-old Haley Collins, of Bel Aire. When police arrived, Collins was unconscious. He died Sept. 5.

Police say the two men knew each other.
