Kansas Supreme Court To Hear Death Penalty Appeal

KSAL StaffDecember 17, 2013

Two Wichita brothers who were sentenced to die for a quadruple homicide in December 2000 are taking their appeals to the Kansas Supreme Court.

The court scheduled separate, two-hour hearings Tuesday for Jonathan and Reginald Carr.

The brothers were convicted of shooting three men and a woman on Dec. 15, 2000, as the victims knelt on a snow-covered field. The four friends and a woman who survived a head wound had been abducted from a home by armed intruders who forced them to engage in sex with each other and withdraw money from ATMs.

Issues raised by the Carrs’ lawyers on appeal include a judge’s refusal to move the trial outside Sedgwick County, the fact that the brothers were tried together and the constitutionality of the death penalty.
