A north-central Kansas man faces more than 16 years in prison for a vehicle crash that killed a teenager and her father.
A judge has found sufficient evidence to try a man and woman in the abduction and rape of an 8-year-old girl in Topeka.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 28-year-old Jeremy Lindsey and 23-year-old Michelle Harris were bound over for trial Tuesday in Shawnee County District Court. The girl vanished for about six hours in September, setting off a large search that ended when she was found walking along a road about two miles from her home.
Lindsey will be tried on 10 charges, including rape, aggravated kidnapping and unlawful administration of a substance to the child. Harris was accused of transporting Lindsey and the girl to an abandoned house. She will be tried on charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated child endangerment.
Lindsey and Harris pleaded not guilty.
