Man Convicted of Raping, Killing 100-Year-Old Woman

KSAL StaffJuly 22, 2016

A southern Kansas man has been convicted in the 2014 death and sexual assault of 100-year-old woman.

A Sedgwick County jury deliberated about two hours Thursday before convicting Kasey Nesbitt of first-degree felony murder, rape and aggravated burglary with the intent to commit a sexual assault.

Jurors concluded that Nesbitt kicked in Martha Schell’s door and assaulted her in September 2014.

Marc Bennett, the county’s district attorney, told jurors that Schell died from blood clots that formed after the attack, which left her with a broken back and other injuries.

Nesbitt’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 18. He faces up to life in prison on the murder conviction, as well as up to 54 years for the rape.
