Crime Stoppers and the Wichita Police Department are asking for the public's help to solve several cold case homicides. Today we are seeking information on a homicide that occurred Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. Timothy McGuigan was suppose to have breakfast with his son that morning, but never arrived; he didn't show up for work either. Worried co-workers called his son and asked him to check on his father. The son went to his father's house in the 2500 block of North Woodridge and found him dead. When police arrived they discovered that McGuigan had been shot multiple times with a small caliber handgun. There was no sign of forced entry, and robbery does not appear to be the motive.

A Newton man charged with recklessly killing his girlfriend’s 18-month-old daughter, who was found dead after being left alone to nap in a car seat, has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will face a jury trial on Aug. 25.

Jason M. Bugner, 21, is charged with a count of involuntary manslaughter in the Aug. 30, 2012, death of Farrah Pendland. According to an amended autopsy report dated September 2013, the girl died by strangulation after she was fastened into a car seat by only its top buckles and placed on the edge of a futon mattress while Bugner visited with a friend in another room.
