Kansas Attorney General to Review Judge Hostage Case

KSAL StaffJune 3, 2016

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office says it will review the investigation of man accused of holding Finney County’s chief judge hostage.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a statement Thursday that his office will review the investigation into the incident to determine if any criminal charges will be filed. The Finney County Attorney’s Office requested that Schmidt’s office handle the case.

Authorities say a standoff began around 7 a.m. on May 31 when the suspect forced his way into 61-year-old Wendel Wurst’s Garden City home and confronted the man and his wife at gunpoint.

The woman was released, and she called police from a neighbor’s home. The standoff ended peacefully several hours later. Police say the suspect was upset over a custody case that Wurst had handled.
