Teen Stabbing Trial Delayed Until Spring

KSAL Staff - October 17, 2015 12:19 pm

A southern Kansas man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he sexually attacked a mother of four before fatally setting her on fire.

A trial involving the stabbing death of a 13-year-old Saline County girl has been delayed until Spring.

Officials tell KSAL News that the trial for Sierra Niehaus, which was scheduled to begin this month, has been delayed until March. Judge Patrick Thompson granted the dealy on Friday.

The case stems from the death of Galazia Niehaus. The Saline County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a stabbing at about 1:45 in the morning on Friday, August 1st, 2014. When deputies arrived at the scene in Northwest Saline County they found the body of Galazia, who had been stabbed to death.

Back in April the judge decided that the 15-year-old will be tried as an adult

Sierra is being held in the Saline County Jail on a million dollar bond.
