Judge orders DNA testing in quadruple homicide

OTTAWA, Kansas (AP) – A Franklin County judge says DNA testing should proceed in the case of a man accused of killing four people in rural Ottawa.

Franklin County District Judge Thomas H. Sachse issued an order this week in the capital murder case against 27-year-old Kyle Flack of Ottawa. He’s charged in the May deaths of 30-year-old Andrew Adam Stout, 31-year-old Steven Eugene White, 21-year-old Kaylie Kathleen Bailey, and Bailey’s 18-month-old daughter, Lana-Leigh.

Prosecutors sought the DNA testing of 13 items that could be used as evidence. The Lawrence Journal-World reports the items haven’t been detailed and Sachse sealed the DNA testing order.

Attorneys for Flack argued in a hearing earlier this month that the defense wanted to inspect any items that could be destroyed by the testing.
