Body of missing woman found; husband arrested

Salina Journal
The body of a Saline County woman who had recently been reported missing was found Monday morning on the two-acre property where she and her husband had lived, and her husband was arrested.
Davin R. Sprague, 36, 2660 E. Shipton Road, was arrested on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder. He was booked into Saline County Jail at 11:33 p.m. Monday and is scheduled to make a first appearance in Saline County District Court at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Kandi Sprague, 28, had been reported missing July 22 by another family member who had not seen her in some time, said Saline County Undersheriff Dave Dunstan.
As part of the investigation of the missing person report, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office acquired a warrant to search the couple’s property. Her body was discovered mid-morning on Monday, Dunstan said.
Dunstan would not comment on whether the body was concealed in any way. He said she appeared to have been there for some time, although the time and cause of her death has not been determined. Dunstan would not comment on whether a weapon has been discovered.
An autopsy was being performed Tuesday afternoon, he said.
“This was a normal missing person (case) up to yesterday morning,” Dunstan said.
He said missing person reports are not uncommon, and 99 percent of the time the person who has been reported missing shows back up unharmed.
Officers were still processing the crime scene Tuesday. The sheriff’s office is being assisted in the investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Saline County Attorney’s Office, Dunstan said.
