Woman Connected To Murder Case Jailed For Probation Violation

HOLTON, Kan. (WIBW) - Authorities say a Topeka woman has violated probation on charges connected to a January murder in Mayetta.

Authorities say Desiree Shopteese was jailed for violating probation by testing positive for methamphetamine. Shopteese was serving 18 months supervised probation on an obstruction of apprehension charge connected to the January 10th shooting death of Kevin Stanley.

Shopteese was convicted of fleeing Stanley's home with the alleged shooter, Lloyd Wabaunsee, and two others in the car. They were later arrested in Iowa.

Jackson County Attorney Shawna Miller said Shopteese could now be ordered to serve an eight-month prison sentence which was suspended in favor of probation. No court date is set yet to consider the probation violation.

She is being arraigned on traffic offenses, including driving under the influence, Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court.

Shopteese was the fiance of David Tiscareno, who shot and killed two Topeka police officers in December.
