Couple Accused In Baby Death Appear In Court
KSAL Staff - December 31, 2013 10:36 am
The Kansas Supreme Court is narrowly divided over whether two brothers needed to have separate capital murder trials for a robbery and rape spree that left four people dead in Wichita in December 2000.
A judge convinces a Salina man and woman accused in a child abuse death to speak with a court-appointed attorney.
27-year-old Nicholas Jordan Corbin and 20-year-old Desirah Nichole Overturf are both facing charges that include first degree murder and child abuse.
Officials tell KSAL News that appearing in court via a video feed Tuesday morning, both indicated to Judge Patrick Thompson that they did not have an attorney, nor did they want a court-appointed attorney. Corbin indicated that he was possibly ready to plead guilty.
Thompson ultimately appointed attorneys for both.
Both are being held in the Saline County Jail on a $1 million bond.
The case stems from the death last Thursday of Corbin and Overturf’s 3-month-old son Jordan.
