Olathe police arrest suspect after woman shot dead
Police in Olathe arrested a suspect Thursday afternoon after a woman was shot to death.
About noon, police found the woman shot in the head in the 400 block of East Spruce Street.
Police arrested Terry R. Hayes, 39, after a hunt that lasted about three hours. He surrendered without incident after police stopped him driving an SUV at 125th and Walnut streets, police said.
Mary Larkin, who lives across the street from where she said police found a body in a driveway, said Hayes had been at that house in recent weeks with his former wife. The two had divorced at one point but she did not know if they remarried, she said. It appeared Hayes was helping make improvements to the home, she said.
