Suspect In 4 Deaths Wants Trial Moved

Associated Press - June 22, 2015 7:54 am

A 21-year-old man has pleaded no contest to a murder charge in the 2014 death of a Pittsburg State student.

The attorney for a man charged with four deaths at a Kansas farm wants the trial moved to a different county.

The attorney for 30-year-old Kyle Flack of Ottawa has filed a motion to move the capital murder trial out of Franklin County.

Flack is charged with murder and rape after two men, a woman and her daughter were found dead near Ottawa in 2013. Flack has pleaded not guilty.

The motion for a change of venue contends Flack cannot get a fair trial in Ottawa County because pretrial publicity has prejudiced potential jurors. The motion doesn’t name a preferred new site for the trial.

A motion hearing is scheduled June 30 to determine whether court documents sealed by judges should be unsealed.

He wants his trial moved, if it is, I hope it comes to Saline County! One of the victims in this is my cousin’s son. This has caused so much pain for our family, my cousin has traveled from southern Texas for every hearing. If it were here, it would be a little closer and more family could attend, as most our family is in Wichita.
