TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says his office will lead the prosecution of a man charged in four deaths on an Ottawa farm.

Schmidt announced Friday that Franklin County Attorney Stephen Hunting asked for his office’s help in prosecuting 27-year-old Kyle Flack. Schmidt says Hunting will continue to be an important part of the prosecution.

Flack was charged last week with the capital murder in the deaths of 18-month-old Lana-Leigh Bailey; her mother, 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey, and 30-year-old Andrew Stout. Flack is also charged with multiple counts of first-degree murder in those deaths, as well as that of 31-year-old Steven White.

The adults’ bodies were found last week on a farm in Franklin County. The child’s body was found several days later in nearby Osage County.
