ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) A North Texas man has surrendered in Kansas on accusations that he shot his estranged wife.

Devanne Jones was being held Monday morning in the Sumner County, Kan., jail, about 35 miles south of Wichita.

Police in Arlington say the 36-year-old Jones and 35-year-old Latoya Alexander got into an argument in the driveway of a home around 1 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say the fight escalated and ended with Jones shooting Alexander and fleeing.

Jones turned himself in later Sunday in Sumner County, about 350 miles north of Arlington. He was being held on a murder warrant and $500,000 bond.

The Sumner County Jail did not have an attorney listed for Jones.
