TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Attorney General Derek Schmidt says the U.S. Supreme Courts fall docket includes three Kansas cases.
Schmidt announced Monday that it is the first time in modern Kansas history the state has three cases before the court at one time. Schmidts office will represent the state in all three cases.
The first Kansas case to be heard this fall involves an appeal filed in a capital murder case filed by James Kraig Kahler, who killed four relatives in Burlingame in November 2009. Kahler argues Kansas law unconstitutionally prevented him from using an insanity defense.
