MEDICINE LODGE, Kan. (AP) — A 35-year-old south-central Kansas man has been sentenced to life in prison for the killing of a woman in Medicine Lodge last year.

Clinton Wayne Rogers, of Medicine Lodge, was sentenced Friday in Barber County Court for the death of Joyce Foulkrod, 61. A family member found Foulkrod dead in her home on July 26, 2020. Authorities have not said how she died.

Rogers pleaded guilty to first-degree murder on Oct. 1.

Rogers fled after the killing and was arrested in Montana on Aug. 11, 2020, on a warrant for theft from Kingman County. Authorities said Rogers stole a truck in Kingman County on his way to Montana.
