KANSAS CITY, Missouri — A 46-year-old man faces murder charges in the shooting death of his employer in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports ( ) that Willie E. Parker is charged in Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree murder in the July 28 shooting death of 54-year-old Michel Ziade of Lee's Summit.

Parker was an employee of the medical transport company that Ziade owned. The shooting occurred in a parking lot near the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.

Parker was taken into custody in Missouri on Thursday evening after a five-hour standoff with police and waived his right to fight extradition back to Kansas during a brief court hearing Friday.

Parker was expected to be returned to Wyandotte County later Friday. It's unclear if Parker has a lawyer.
