OTTAWA, Kan. — Hundreds of people showed up in Ottawa Friday evening for a vigil to remember the victims in the Franklin County homicides. It comes just hours after prosecutors charged a suspect with four counts of murder.
Charges against Kyle Flack
Kyle Flack, 27, the man accused of murdering and raping a young mother and killing two other men, whose bodies were found early this week on an Ottawa farm, made his first appearance in court Friday in Franklin County.
He faces four counts of first-degree and two counts of capital murder. In addition to the murder charges, Flack faces one charge of rape and one charge of criminal possession of a firearm. Authorities say he raped Kaylie Bailey before he killed her.
The bodies of Kaylie Bailey, Andrew Stout and Steven White were found at Stout’s farm earlier this week. The whereabouts of 18-month-old Lana Bailey, Kaylie’s daughter, remain unknown.
