TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Northeastern Kansas authorities have identified a man and a woman found dead last week in an apparent murder-suicide. The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office says the bodies of 21-year-old Connor O’Hara and 20-year-old Hannah King, both of Topeka. were found Friday afternoon in a home just south of Topeka.
