Kansas AG evaluating evidence in SE Kansas slayings

KSAL StaffNovember 29, 2013

An upcoming court appearance is scheduled for a 22-year-old man suspected of killing a southeast Kansas woman and her three children.

The office of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a release Friday that David Cornell Bennett Jr., of Cherryvale, makes a first appearance Monday in Labette County court.

Bennett was captured Tuesday and is being held in the Labette County Jail on $5 million in the deaths of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger, and her three children, ages 9, 6 and 4. Bennett has not been charged in the case.

Schmidt’s office says prosecutors will make a decision “as soon as possible” about charges in the case.

It’s unclear if Bennett has an attorney. The Labette County Jail has declined to make him available for comment.
