ULYSSES – (November 16, 2022) – A southwest Kansas man has been sentenced to life in prison in connection with the 2019 death of a child, Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

Uraquio Agustin Arredondo, 29, of Ulysses, was sentenced yesterday in Grant County District Court by Judge Clinton Peterson. Arredondo was sentenced to life in a Kansas Department of Corrections facility without the possibility of parole for 25 years for one count of first degree murder. In addition, he was sentenced to 110 months in a KDOC facility for one count of child abuse. The sentences are to be served consecutively, followed by lifetime post-release supervision.

Arredondo was convicted of the crimes in April following a bench trial.

The case was investigated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Ulysses Police Department. The case was prosecuted by former Assistant Attorneys General Shannon Rush, C.J. Rieg and Adam Zentner. Sentencing was handled by Assistant Attorney General Michael Gayoso.
