State supreme court to hear appeals in Wichita murder case
The Kansas Supreme Court will hear arguments next week in the appeals of two brothers sentenced to death for murders committed in Wichita in December 2000.
Justices have scheduled two-hour hearings on Tuesday for Jonathan Carr and his brother, Reginald.
The Carr brothers were convicted for killing three men and a woman on Dec. 15, 2000, as the victims knelt side-by-side on a snow-covered soccer field near 29th Street North and Greenwich Road. Another woman was shot in the head, but survived.
The four friends and the surviving woman were at a Wichita home when two armed intruders forced them to engage in sex with each other, then made them withdraw money from ATMs.
Attorneys for the Carrs argue the convictions should be set aside over numerous issues raised at their trial.
