A man is about to learn whether he will be sentenced to death for fatally shooting three adults and an 18-month-old girl on an eastern Kansas farm in 2013.
Jurors have recommended the death sentence for 30-year-old Kyle Flack. A Franklin County judge will announce whether he will follow the recommendation at a sentencing hearing Wednesday.
Flack was convicted in March of capital murder in the deaths of 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey and her 18-month-old daughter, Lana. Flack also was convicted in the deaths of Bailey’s boyfriend, 31-year-old Andrew Stout, and his roommate, 31-year-old Steven White, who lived in a rural farmhouse where Flack sometimes stayed in Ottawa, about 50 miles southwest of Kansas City.
Kansas hasn’t executed anyone since it reinstated capital punishment in 1994.
