Supreme Court Upholds Kansas Death Sentence
Associated Press - March 28, 2017 10:13 am
A judge has ruled that a man accused of raping and trying to kill a 7-year-old Wichita girl will go on trial.
The U.S. Supreme Court has let stand the Kansas death sentence of a man convicted of killing a college student more than two decades ago.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to review 61-year-old Gary Kleypas’ case.
Kleypas was the first person condemned in Kansas after it reinstated the death penalty in 1994.
Kansas hasn’t executed anyone in more than 50 years.
