Couple Accused In Baby Death Appear In Court

The American Civil Liberties Union has revised its lawsuit over gay marriage in Kansas to raise new claims that the state is refusing to recognize the unions performed in Kansas and other states.
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.
