LINCOLN, Kan. (AP) -- The son of a central Kansas sheriff has been charged in the fatal shooting of another man.

Lincoln County Attorney Jennifer O'Hare says in a news release that 33-year-old Scott M. Weigel was charged Monday with second-degree murder. Weigel is the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel.

The shooting occurred around 1:30 a.m. Monday in the city of Lincoln. Authorities identified the dead man as 21-year-old Keith David Ancell.

The younger Weigel was being held on $750,000 bond. It was not clear Monday night whether he had an attorney.

O'Hare's office and the sheriff's department say the case is being handled by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
