Duncan woman arrested in death of ex-husband, his fiancee
Dana L. Chandler, 51, of Duncan, was arrested in the 2002 Topeka, Kan., deaths of her ex-husband, Michael R. Sisco, 47, and his fiancee, Karen Harkness, 53.
DUNCAN — A Duncan woman was arrested Monday in connection with the 2002 killing of her ex-husband and his fiancee.
Dana L. Chandler, 51, was charged with the two homicides in district court in Shawnee County, Kan., said Dakota Loomis, the district attorney's deputy chief of staff.
Michael R. Sisco, 47, and his fiancee, Karen Harkness, 53, were shot to death in Topeka on July 7, 2002. Police said they were shot in their home with a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. Investigators said Sisco was shot seven times, and Harkness had five gunshot wounds.
Chandler was questioned by Topeka police after their deaths but was not charged, Loomis said. However, investigative work continued.
Chandler, who had been living outside of Duncan in Stephens County, was arrested about 11 a.m. Monday, Loomis said.
Chandler had been living with her sister and was not working at the time of her arrest, authorities said.
The killings gained national attention in October 2009 when they were featured on the CBS program “48 Hours Mystery.”
