WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 31-year-old Wichita man is charged with first-degree murder in the death of an employee of Steckline Communications.

Antwon D. Banks Sr. was charged Wednesday in the Feb. 9 death of 25-year-old Daniel Flores.

Banks made his first appearance in Sedgwick County District Court Wednesday via a video link from Sedgwick County Jail, where he is being held on $750,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 5.

Flores' body was found in the basement of Steckline Communications, which houses radio stations and Mid America Ag Network.

Authorities have not discussed a possible motive for the killing. Lisa Bryce, an office manager for Steckline, told The Wichita Eagle last week she is Banks' ex-girlfriend and was likely his intended target.

Banks has applied for a court-appointed attorney.
