Search warrant executed in 1100 block of Dearborn

Butler County Sheriff officers were at a residence in the 1100 block of Dearborn of Augusta Thursday afternoon executing a search warrant. The action was in connection with the charge of first degree murder against Susan Lynn May in the shooting death of Richard Hrejsa on or about Sept. 18.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet said Friday morning, "Her (Susan May) lives at that location and we believe she has knowledge of the death. We're covering all bases."

May made her first court appearance earlier week and a preliminary control hearing has been set for Oct. 21.

The state recommended a $250,000 bond with a request she not leave Butler County or have any contact with any of the endorsed witnesses including her daughter.

May was arrested earlier this week after sheriff's deputies discovered a decomposed body in her back yard after receiving a tip.
