Trial Postponed in Franklin County Murders

Associated Press - July 16, 2015 3:19 pm

The capital murder trial has been postponed for a 30-year-old Kansas man accused of killing four people.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Franklin County District Judge Eric Godderz on Thursday granted a defense request postponing Kyle Trevor Flack’s murder trial from September 2015 to February, 22, 2016.

Flack is charged with capital murder in the 2013 slayings of 21-year-old Kaylie Smith Bailey, and her daughter, 18-month-old Lana-Leigh Bailey. He’s also charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the deaths of 20-year-old Andrew Stout and 31-year-old Steven White.

Defense attorneys on Thursday gave several reasons for seeking the postponement, including the resignation of Ron Evans as head of the death penalty defense unit, a state-funded group that represents indigent defendants in capital cases.

Timothy Frieden is now Flack’s lead defense attorney.
