Rape trial delayed until October

August 18, 2005

First April, then August, now October.

Trial for the suspect in a December 2004 robbery and rape at Wood Oil, 109 4-H Road, has been rescheduled to begin Oct. 3 in Leavenworth County District Court.

The trial originally was scheduled to begin April 18 but was continued because the suspect replaced his court-appointed lawyer. An Aug. 1 trial date was rescheduled because the suspect's attorney was attending a funeral, said Deborah Owens, a spokeswoman in the Leavenworth County Attorney's Office.

The suspect, a 26-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man, continues to be held in Leavenworth County Jail.
