OTTAWA, Kan. – The attorney for a man charged with four deaths at a Kansas farm wants the trial moved to a different county.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the attorney for Kyle Flack, 30, of Ottawa has filed a motion to move the capital murder trial out of Franklin County.
Flack is charged with murder and rape after two men, a woman and her daughter were found dead near Ottawa in 2013. Flack has pleaded not guilty.
The motion for a change of venue contends Flack cannot get a fair trial in Ottawa County because pretrial publicity has prejudiced potential jurors.
The motion doesn’t name a preferred new site for the trial.
A motion hearing is scheduled June 30 to determine whether court documents sealed by judges should be unsealed.
