KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) -- The charred home of a former Kansas lawman convicted of killing his wife and setting fire to their house could be demolished before the end of the month.

Jurors in the south-central Kansas community of Kingman found Brett Seacat guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder, arson and child endangerment in the 2011 death of Vashti Seacat. She was found dead with a gunshot wound to her neck inside the burned-out home.

KWCH-TV (http://bit.ly/18yI0DM ) reports Kingman officials planned to accept bids Thursday to demolish the condemned house. A neighbor, Burel Nicks Jr., says he plans to throw a block party to celebrate after the home is gone.

Brett Seacat is a former Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy. He was teaching at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center at the time of the killing.
