Two Lansing residents face attempted-murder charges

March 3, 2004

Two Lansing residents have been charged with attempted first-degree murder in connection with a fight in January.

Victor Miller, 48, and Robin Mitchell-Davis, 39, also face charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery. A preliminary hearing for the two is set for 1 p.m. Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Originally, Miller was charged with reckless aggravated battery and driving under the influence, but prosecutors dismissed those charges in late January.

After the altercation on Jan. 10, Richard R. Reardon, 51, Lansing, was taken by air ambulance to the University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., where he was treated until Feb. 6.

Authorities allege Miller and Mitchell-Davis kidnapped Reardon in a 1985 Dodge van. Once in a field near Marxen Road and U.S. Highway 73, the defendants ran over Reardon with the van, officials say.
