Man Arrested Over 4 Kansas Slayings Appears In Court

KSAL StaffDecember 2, 2013

A man held in connection with the deaths of a southeast Kansas mother and her three children has had his first court appearance.

KWCH-TV reports that 22-year-old David Cornell Bennett Jr., of Cherryvale, appeared Monday in Labette County District Court through a video feed from the county jail.

The judge found probable cause to continue holding Bennett on $5 million bail in connection with the deaths of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger and her children, 9-year-old Hollie Betts, 6-year-old Jaxon Betts and 4-year-old Averie Betts.

The attorney general’s office is handling the case and has until Dec. 10 to file charges.

Umbarger and her children were found dead Nov. 25 at their Parsons home. Authorities have not said how they died.

Bennett has filed paperwork to obtain a court-appointed attorney.
