WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man suspected of stabbing to death his roommate in Wichita has been charged with first-degree murder.

The charge is leveled at 44-year-old Jason McCaleb, who made his first court appearance Tuesday. He’s being held in Sedgwick County Jail, pending $700,000 bail. It’s not clear whether he has an attorney.

He’s accused of killing 28-year-old Devin Cook. Police say McCaleb told officers called to the home early Saturday morning that he wanted Cook to leave but she refused. They told him that because she’d lived there for about a month, she’d established residency and would require legal action for eviction.

Police say officers who returned later in the day found her inside the home with several stab wounds. She died at a hospital.
