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.

The only thing wrong with the death penalty in Kansas is we DON’T use it!!!
