Jury finds Lansing man guilty of attempted murder
A 48-year-old Lansing man was found guilty last week on a charge of attempted second-degree murder in connection with an incident in which another Lansing man was kidnapped and run over.
According to Roger Marrs of the Leavenworth County attorney's office, a jury also found Victor Miller guilty of aggravated kidnapping, but not guilty of aggravated robbery.
Post-trial motions for Miller will be heard Dec. 1 in Leavenworth County District Court, Marrs said.
The charges stemmed from an altercation that occurred on Jan. 10 in a field near Marxen Road, a quarter-mile east of U.S. Highway 73. Richard R. Reardon spent nearly a month at the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., recovering from injuries he received in the incident.
A woman involved in the incident, Robin Mitchell-Davis, 40, also of Lansing, was sentenced Friday on a kidnapping charge. Mitchell-Davis -- who originally was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery -- was given a suspended 66-month prison sentence and placed on 36 months of intensive supervised probation.
