Kansas Attorney General taking over prosecution in Ottawa homicide case
Prosecutors from the Kansas Attorney General's office have taken on the lead role in the capital murder case stemming from the quadruple homicides discovered at a property in rural Ottawa last week, according to a statement from Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt's office Friday.
Kyle T. Flack, 27, Ottawa has been charged with two counts of capital murder and two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the killings of Kaylie Kathleen Bailey, 21, of Olathe; Bailey’s boyfriend, Andrew Adam Stout, 30, of Ottawa; and Steven Eugene White, 31, of Ottawa; whose bodies were found at a home on Georgia Road, about five miles west of Ottawa, early last week. He is also charged in the killing of Bailey's 18-month-old daughter, Lana-Leigh Bailey, whose body was found in rural Osage County late Saturday.
Flack remains in Franklin County Jail with bond set at $10 million, and he could face the death penalty if convicted. He is scheduled to appear in Franklin County District Court again on July 8.
The Franklin County Attorney requested the assistance of the Kansas Attorney General's office, according to the statement, and will continue to play a role in the prosecution.
