Wichita, KS - Law enforcement officials searched two homes - one in Kansas and one in Missouri - as they continue to investigate the killing of an abortion doctor.

Dr. George Tiller, 67, was shot and killed while attending church services inside the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita on Sunday.

Scott Roeder, 51, was arrested a few hours after the killing. He is being held without bail in a Wichita jail. Prosecuters said they will formally charge Roeder tomorrow.

Tiller's clinic, The Women's Health Care Services Clinic, is one of only three in the country that perform late-term abortion - an abortion performed after the 21st week of pregnancy.

Tiller was shot once before and his clinic was bombed in 1985.
