KS Attorney Gen Appeals Death Penalty Decisions

Supreme Court sign  260 t640

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has formally appealed a decision to vacate death sentences of three men convicted in two separate murder cases. Schmidt announced Thursday that he will appeal Kansas Supreme Court decisions in the case of brothers Reginald and Jonathan Carr, and Sidney Gleason. The state court in July upheld capital murder convictions against the three men but vacated their death sentences. The Carr brothers were convicted of killing four people in December 2000 in Wichita after committing several other crimes against them and a woman who survived the ordeal. Gleason was convicted in Barton County for the February 2004 killing of Mikiala Martinez and Darren Wornkey in Great Bend. Martinez was a potential witness against Gleason in an earlier crime. Wornkey was her boyfriend.
