MOUNTAIN VIEW, AR (KAIT) – A Mountain Home man severely wounded in an alleged burglary in Kansas apparently came home to get medical help.

According to the "Topeka Capital-Journal," 19-year-old Dustin Chism is accused of breaking into a Holton, Kansas, home on June 23.  During the home invasion, investigators say the homeowner shot Chism.

Chism apparently went to a Topeka hospital for treatment, then checked himself out and headed to his home in Arkansas where he received further medical treatment.

On Thursday, Chism surrendered to Stone County Sheriff's deputies.  Chism waived extradition and was transported to Kansas on Friday.

He's charged with aggravated burglary, nonresidential burglary, conspiracy to commit theft and felony theft.  He's being held on $100,000 bond.

Also charged are Justin D. Rupnicki, 18, of Circleville, Kansas, and Daniel T. Baker, 21, of Holton, Kansas.  Baker's mother, 51-year-old Lori Baker, is also charged.
