Trial Delayed for Quadruple Murder in Kansas

The capital murder trial of a man accused of killing a child and three adults in eastern Kansas has been delayed again.

Kyle Flack is charged with capital murder in Franklin County in the 2013 shooting deaths of 21-year-old Kaylie Smith Bailey, and her young daughter, Lana-Leigh Bailey. He’s also charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of 30-year-old Andrew Stout and 31-year-old Steven White.

Prosecutors say they’ll seek the death penalty.

District court administrator John Steelman said Thursday the trial is now set to begin March 7 in Ottawa. It had been scheduled to start following jury selection, which is underway and expected to end by next week. The trial had originally been scheduled for last September.

Steelman says he doesn’t know why the new delay was sought.
