Woman wanted in Mesa for murder caught, accused of another deadly shooting in Phoenix

A woman who was on the run after police say she murdered a man inside the bedroom of a home in Mesa has been caught 2 months later - and she's being accused of another homicide in Phoenix.

Kathryn "Katie" Hansen, 27, is accused of shooting and killing 32-year-old Keith Emmons on Feb. 7 around 2 a.m. near Southern Avenue and Sossaman Road.

"This afternoon, the Phoenix Police Department notified Mesa Police that they had a lead and possible location on Hansen. Soon after, they took Hansen into custody," Mesa Police said in a news release just two months after the alleged murder.

On April 9, Phoenix Police said that Hansen also faces charges in connection to another deadly shooting that happened back in January.

In that case, 41-year-old Aaron Byous was shot at a home near 16th Street and Union Hills Drive. It's unclear how detectives discovered her connection to the case.

Mesa Police thanked the community for help taking Hansen into custody after getting many tips.

"Those tips allowed detectives to follow up on leads that we believe ultimately led to Hansen’s arrest. Our community’s willingness to step up helped us take a violent offender off the street. We hope this arrest brings some peace and closure to the Emmons family."

Details about how Hansen was taken into custody weren't given.
