Landmark editor

The Platte County Sheriff's Department received information from the Houston, Tex. Police Department Wednesday that James Detmer, wanted on suspicion of murder in Platte County, is being held without bond in Harris County, Tex.

Detmer was arrested on local tampering and forgery charges yesterday by the Houston Police Department.

James Detmer has been charged with second degree murder in the Jan. 12, 2001 death of his 72-year-old father, Wilber Detmer who was found dead at his residence located near Parkville in Platte County last January.

Houston Police Department discovered some evidence in Detmer's possession that tied him to the Platte County area. Local sheriff's department officials have confirmed Detmer's identity.

Platte County Sheriff's Department is currently working with Houston Police Department to return Detmer to Platte County.
