Trial delayed in rape case

April 21, 2005

The trial for the suspect in the December robbery and rape at Wood Oil, 109 4-H Road, has been continued until next month.

The trial was originally scheduled to begin Monday. However, the defendant, a 25-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man, recently hired a lawyer who will need to be brought up to speed on the case, said Deborah Owens, spokeswoman for the Leavenworth County Attorney's office. The suspect's previous attorney was court-appointed, she said.

Owens said that the earliest the trial could resume would be in May.
