November 24, 1993

KENMORE, N.Y. (AP) _ A man shot his parents to death, then put his mother’s body in the trunk of their car and drove halfway across the country, apparently bent on killing his estranged wife, police said.

Kim Ordway, 32, was arrested outside the Kenmore house of his wife, Sue.

″We really can’t speculate, but the logical assumption is that he was there to kill her, too,″ Police Chief Elmer Arnet said.

The body of Betty Ordway, 61, was found in the trunk. Her husband, 62-year- old Clarence Ordway, was found dead in their Stockton, Kan., home.

Ordway, who had been living with his parents, was arraigned Tuesday on murder charges and held without bail.
