A man charged with murder in Coffey County on Wednesday is being sought by authorities.

Russell Allen Dempsay was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated robbery after allegedly robbing and killing Richard Duane Freeman II on July 7 at his home in LeRoy.

"We ask that anyone who sees Russell Allen Dempsay call the police immediately," Morrison said. "Kansans should not approach him or attempt to interact with him. They should just call law enforcement right away."
