SILVER LAKE, Kan. (AP) – A northeast Kansas man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his 4-year-old granddaughter.

Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay announced Thursday that 56-year-old Timothy Wayne Funk Sr., of Silver Lake, was charged in the July death of Brandy Funk. He is also charged with two counts of aggravated endangering a child.

Brandy, of Beatrice, Nebraska, died July 23 at a Silver Lake home.

Authorities did not release any further information Thursday.

Funk remains jailed in Shawnee County Jail Thursday afternoon on $500,000 bond.

Funk was discharged from state prison in August 2012 after serving time for driving under the influence, fourth or subsequent offense in June 2008.
