On March 27th at 6:30 pm, law enforcement responded to a domestic disturbance at the Roadway Inn on 429 West Diamond Drive. The incident involved a 42-year-old female victim from Winfield and her former boyfriend, Jay Weigel, 48, from Hays.

The female victim traveled to Salina and was followed by Weigel. He found the victim in the parking lot of Roadway Inn. He allegedly confronted the victim, demanding she exit her vehicle, and proceeded to break her car window with a hammer.
