Attorney hopes to keep lid on client’s confession

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2013

A Kansas attorney is asking a judge to suppress statements his client made when he went into Sedgwick County jail in December and asked to be arrested for killing his wife.

Guy Wayne Palmer is charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 16 death of his 61-year-old wife, Debra. The Wichita Eagle reports the woman’s body was found at the couple’s home after investigators followed up on Palmer’s claims.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Jeremy Wood testified Friday he didn’t initially thought Palmer might be a homeless person looking for a place to stay.

A suppression hearing that started Friday continues Monday, with jury selection in Palmer’s trial to begin Tuesday. His attorney says he wasn’t read his Miranda rights before making his statements so they should be suppressed.
