Trial scheduled in 2004 case
A second trial for the suspect charged with the robbery of a Lansing gasoline station and the rape of a clerk there in December 2004 now is scheduled for next month.
The 26-year-old suspect, from Kansas City, Kan., is charged with robbing Wood Oil, 109 4-H Road, and raping the on-duty clerk.
The case originally went to trial Oct. 3 in Leavenworth County District Court. But Judge Frederick Stewart declared a mistrial Oct. 5, requiring a new trial to be scheduled.
Several factors have delayed the retrial, which is now scheduled for April 24 in Leavenworth County District Court.
The suspect remains in Leavenworth County Jail.
