Wood Oil trial delayed

November 14, 2005

The trial in the December 2004 robbery of a Lansing gasoline station and the rape of a clerk there that had been scheduled for Monday, Nov. 14, has been postponed again.

Deborah Owens, spokeswoman for the Leavenworth County Attorney's Office, said the suspect's lawyer had called to say he was sick Nov. 14. The new trial date will be set on Monday, Nov. 21, Owens said.

The 26-year-old Kansas City, Kan., suspect in the case went to trial on Oct. 3. But Judge Frederick Stewart declared a mistrial Oct. 5, requiring a new trial to be scheduled.
