Man charged with killing ex-wife in Logan County

PARIS, Ark. (AP) - A Logan County man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of his ex-wife.

Prosecutors on Friday charged 38-year-old Joshua Johnson of New Blaine in the Wednesday shooting death of 30-year-old Lora Karras at Karras' home in Scranton. Authorities say three children were in the home at the time but were not injured.

Johnson is jailed on $1 million bond and has not yet entered a plea.

Logan County sheriff's investigators say they have not discovered a motive for the shooting.
