TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A newly-released autopsy reports says a 72-year-old Lawrence man was driving drunk when he collided with a vehicle driven by an off-duty Topeka police officer, killing both men. The crash on May 29 killed 25-year-old officer Trey McCluskey, of Mayetta, and Peter Bieri.

And a 36-year-old man died from a gunshot wound to the leg.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say the deaths of a woman and her son appear to a murder-suicide.
