1 suspect pleads guilty in Kansas carnival vendors' deaths


GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — A Florida man has pleaded guilty in connection to the deaths of a couple who were killed at a Kansas fair after one suspect posed as a carnival mafia boss and ordered the killings.

Michael Fowler Jr., of Sarasota, Florida, pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree murder and theft. He is among five people charged in the deaths of Alfred "Sonny" Carpenter and Pauline Carpenter of Wichita, whose bodies were found buried in shallow graves in Arkansas in July.

As part of his plea deal, a capital murder charge was dropped against Fowler, The Great Bend Tribune reported.
