The Kansas Supreme Court has reversed the "Hard 50" murder sentence of a Wichita man but refused to rule whether changes made by legislators to the law in 2013 can be applied.
A preliminary hearing in a second-degree murder case involving the son of a Kansas sheriff has been postponed again.
The hearing for Scott Weigel had been scheduled for Monday in Lincoln County District, but it was rescheduled to Dec. 12. The 33-year-old Weigel is charged in the Sept. 9 shooting death of 21-year-old Keith Ancell of Lincoln. Weigel is being held on $750,000 bond.
The hearing was first postponed in September.
Darrell E. Miller, acting Lincoln County attorney, asked the court to delay Weigel’s preliminary hearing during a proceeding Monday afternoon.
Weigel’s lawyer, Roger Struble, said the motion was faxed to his office Monday.
Weigel is the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel.
