Man accused of killing Kansas detective appears in court

KSAL StaffJune 25, 2016

A 29-year-old man charged in the death of a Kansas City, Kansas, police detective has made his first court appearance in Kansas.

Curtis Ayers, of Tonganoxie, is charged with capital murder in the May 9 death of Det. Brad Lancaster. Ayers is accused of fleeing to Missouri in a car after Lancaster was shot.

Kansas City, Missouri, police shot and wounded Ayers before taking him into custody. He had been hospitalized until Monday when he was returned to Kansas to face the charges.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://j.mp/28V4Rw7) Ayers appeared Friday in Wyandotte County court, where he waived his right to a preliminary hearing within 10 days. He wasn’t required to enter a plea. His next court date is July 20.

Prosecutors say they anticipate filing additional charges.
