WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – Federal prosecutors have accused a Canadian man living in south-central Kansas of stealing the identity of a younger brother who died as an infant decades ago.

Fifty-eight-year-old Leslie Lyle Camick, of Winfield, is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 22. A status hearing on the case was taking place Wednesday in Wichita.

The telecommunications field engineer has been indicted on charges including mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, immigration document fraud and lying to the U.S. Patent Office.

Prosecutors say Camick used his dead brother’s birth certificate to flee Canada in 2006 to avoid overdue child support, back taxes and other legal difficulties.
