Harvey Lee Baker was a decorated Vietnam War veteran credited with saving the lives of two fellow Marines.

“He was a war hero, and he was murdered,” Baker’s daughter, Nicole Folger, told The Capital-Journal.

Baker, 74, was found deceased Thursday at a North Topeka mobile home park.

Vicki Lee Shelton, 61, was being held on a $ 1 million bond in connection with intentional and premeditated first-degree murder Sunday morning at the Shawnee County Jail.

No formal charges have been filed.

‘Intercepted the attacker and killed the man in hand-to-hand combat’

Baker received a Silver Star for valor displayed on Feb. 26, 1969, while serving in Vietnam, Folger told The Capital-Journal on Saturday in a phone call from her home in Burlington, Okla.
