CHANUTE, Kan. (AP) -- A 21-year-old woman charged in the death of a southeast Kansas woman is due in court this week.

Michelle Voorhees is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated burglary in the January death of 36-year-old Cristy Wiles, whose remains were found in a burned Chanute home. A public defender appointed to represent her didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday.

Neosho County Attorney Linus Thuston says a preliminary hearing Friday will determined if there's enough evidence to try Voorhees in the case.

A second suspect, 26-year-old Brian Shields, has been hospitalized since he crashed his vehicle while trying to avoid capture in northwest Missouri last week. Shields is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated burglary. Online records don't list a lawyer for Shields.
