By The Herald Staff | 3/12/2014
All four victims in a May 2013 quadruple homicide died of shotgun wounds, according to testimony heard Wednesday morning in Franklin County District Court during a preliminary hearing for Kyle T. Flack, 28, Ottawa.
The body of Lana Bailey, 18-month old, was discovered about dusk May 11, 2013, hidden in a suitcase found in Tequa Creek in Osage County, however no cause of death for the infant was disclosed by officials until today. The baby didn’t die immediately from the shotgun wound, according to Wednesday morning’s testimony. Flack faces charges of capital murder, first-degree murder, attempted rape and criminal possession of a firearm in connection with the deaths of Lana Bailey, her mother, Kaylie Bailey, 21, Andrew Stout, 30, and Steven White, 31.
The bodies of Kaylie Bailey, Stout and White were discovered May 6 and May 7 at 3197 Georgia Road, west of Ottawa. Lana Bailey’s body remained missing until May 11, as law enforcement agents and other search parties combed the area for the baby.
The deaths of Lana and Kaylie Bailey are listed under the one count of capital murder on an amended complaint released last month by the Franklin County Attorney’s Office. If convicted, Flack could face the death penalty in the capital murder charge. Prosecutors have yet to indicate if they will seek the death penalty in the case. More details to follow as the preliminary hearing continues today.
