KANSAS CITY, KAN. (AP) -

A man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend in Kansas has been arrested in Detroit.

The Kansas City Star reports that 24-year Lee Edward Williams is expected to appear before a Michigan judge Monday to determine if he will fight extradition.

He is charged in Wyandotte County District Court in Kansas with first-degree murder in the Sept. 4 shooting death of 20-year-old Ty'Shai Carvin. He is also charged with illegally possessing a firearm.
 
Authorities also have filed a motion seeking to revoke his probation in a drug distribution case.
 
Family members said that Williams and Carvin had dated, but she was trying to break off the relationship. Carvin was the mother of a 2-year-old boy.
 
 A $500,000 bond was set in the murder case. It's not immediately known if Williams has an attorney.
