Flack Seeks Venue Change For Murder Trial

Associated Press - August 20, 2015 4:40 pm

Lawyers representing a Kansas man accused of killing three adults and a child have asked the judge to move the trial.

Kyle Trevor Flack is charged with capital murder in the 2013 slayings of 21-year-old Kaylie Smith Bailey and her daughter, 18-month-old Lana-Leigh Bailey. He’s also charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the deaths of 30-year-old  Andrew A. Stout, and 31-year-old Steven White.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Flack’s lawyers asked the Franklin County District Court judge Thursday to move the case outside Franklin County. A professor testified that a survey showed fewer Wyandotte County residents surveyed were aware of the slayings than Franklin County residents surveyed.

The judge said he’ll decide on the venue request before a Sept. 29 hearing.

The trial is scheduled to start February 22, 2016.
