According to jail booking records, 41-year-old Amber K. Ahrens was arrested Tuesday in the 400 block of North Ash on suspicion of second-degree intentional murder, criminal possession of a firearm, and possession or distribution of opiates.

She was charged Thursday in Sedgwick County Court for second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon by a felon. Her bond is set at $150,000

On June 17, officers responded to a disturbance with shots fired at a home in the 1200 block of North Pinecrest. Upon arrival, officers located 53-year-old David Leddy of Wichita in the front of the home with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead.

Police said their investigation revealed a disturbance ensued earlier in the day at the home between Leddy and a 19-year-old man who did not live there. During the disturbance, Leddy’s vehicle was damaged, and the 19-year-old was battered.

The 19-year-old man’s 41-year-old mother and three friends, a 44-year-old female, a 54-year-old male, and a 31-year-old female, later arrived at the home. A fight then ensued in front of the house, and shots were fired that struck Leddy.

The case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
