Kansas Court to Rule in Brothers’ Capital Cases

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2014

The Kansas Supreme Court is preparing to rule on the death sentences and capital murder convictions of two brothers in connection with the shooting deaths of four people in Wichita.

The court said it would release decisions Friday morning on the appeals of Jonathan and Reginald Carr. They are facing lethal injection for the December 2000 slayings of three men and a woman in a snow-covered soccer field.

The brothers were convicted of dozens of criminal charges in connection with the spree.

They also were convicted of a fifth killing that occurred just days before the soccer-field murders.

The Carr brothers are among seven condemned murderers in Kansas, but the Supreme Court has yet to uphold such a death sentence since Kansas re-established capital punishment in 1994.
