Man Charged In Death Of Missing Kansas Girl

Authorities in Kansas say a man believed to be the one seen in a store surveillance video has been charged with the murder of 18-year-old Kelsey Smith.  The Johnson County Court says 26-year-old Edwin Hall has been accused of first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping. Bond has been set at five million dollars.
  Hall is expected to make a court appearance later today through a video hookup from the jail where he is being held.  Smith's body was found yesterday in Missouri, three days after she vanished from the parking lot of a Target store across the border in Kansas.
  Surveillance video shows a man identified as Hall entering and leaving the store at around the same time as Smith.  Hall was arrested yesterday after being interviewed as a "person of interest" in Smith's disappearance.
