WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The mother of a Kansas man wanted in the killing of two people and the wounding of another in southeast Kansas says her son is the victim of a setup that began with false accusations that he kidnapped his own children.

Beverly Welsh told The Associated Press Friday that she is terrified for her son as the manhunt for him continues. She says his children are suffering.

Authorities have offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the capture of 35-year-old Kevin Robert Welsh of Toronto, Kan., after the Oct. 2 shootings in Greenwood County.

He is wanted in connection with the deaths of Keith and Sheila Kriesel and the shooting of Catherine Scheff, all of Eureka.

Scheff remains in serious condition Friday at a Wichita hospital.
