SHERMAN COUNTY — The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Sherman County Sheriff’s Office served an arrest warrant related to the homicide of 21-year-old Zachary Chavez, who was killed on Dec. 20, according to a press release from the KBI.

Jesus M. Soto, 21, Goodland, had previously been in police custody at the Sherman County Jail on a warrant unrelated to this incident, but an arrest warrant was issued Friday night and was recently served to Soto for involuntary manslaughter related to Chavez’s death. Soto and Chavez were friends, the release said.

The Sherman County Attorney is expected to prosecute the case.
