Expert witnesses in the capital murder trial of an eastern Kansan man are testifying about how three adults and a toddler died.
A forensic pathologist who performed the autopsies and a forensic entomology expert who examined maggots were among the witnesses called this week to testify in the trial of Kyle Flack.
The 30-year-old Ottawa man is charged with capital murder in the deaths of 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey and her 18-month-old daughter, Lana, in spring 2013. He also is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shotgun deaths of 30-year-old Andrew Stout and 31-year-old Steven White.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the adults suffered shotgun wounds and were left under either a tarp or mound of clothes. Lana’s body was found in a rural Osage County creek.
