Teen, mom charged in shooting of adoptive parents

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A teenager and his biological mother have been charged in the shootings of the teen's adoptive parents at the couple's home near Wichita.

Eighteen-year-old Anthony Bluml was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the death of 53-year-old Melissa Bluml in Valley Center. He's also charged with attempted first-degree murder in the Nov. 15 shooting of Roger Bluml, who suffered a critical head wound.

The teen is also charged with aggravated robbery, burglary and theft of items authorities say were taken from the home.

Bluml's 35-year-old biological mother, San Diego resident Kisha Schaberg, faces the same charges, as do two 18-year-old men from Park City, Kan.

All four had first appearances via video hookups Monday in Sedgwick County District Court.

Defense attorneys had no comment or had not yet been assigned.
