Kansas attorney general to appeal capital rulings



Published: Fri, August 8, 2014 @ 1:05 p.m.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says he will appeal recent state Supreme Court decisions overturning the death sentences of three men convicted of capital murder.

Schmidt announced today that he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate the sentences for Sidney Gleason and brothers Jonathan and Reginald Carr.

The Kansas court overturned the Carr brothers’ sentences July 25, concluding that they should have had separate sentencing hearings.

The Carrs were sentenced to die for the fatal shootings of three men and a woman in a snow-covered soccer field in Wichita in December 2000.

The Kansas court overturned Gleason’s death sentence on July 18, saying the judge’s instructions to jurors were flawed. He was convicted for the murders of a Great Bend couple in February 2004.
