WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Police Department arrested a man in connection with a woman’s death on Tuesday.

Officers found 46-year-old Kacy Joel with “significant trauma” in a home’s backyard in the 5700 block of E. Central.

Officers rendered aid, and Joel was transported to a local hospital, but she later died from her injuries.

Police said eyewitnesses reported a man running from the scene. Officers located him after a brief police pursuit. Police say the man made comments saying he was going to die by suicide by cop and was wielding a knife when officers confronted him.

Officers were able to get him to put the knife down, and he was taken into custody without incident.

The man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder.
