Ex-husband of Murder Victim Settles Lawsuit

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The ex-husband of a Kansas murder victim has settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by his children.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Atchison County District Court records filed Tuesday say the terms of the settlement between Eugene Kimmi Sr. and his children are confidential.

Kimmi was the ex-husband of Patricia Kimmi, 58, of rural Horton, who was killed in November 2009.

Patricia Kimmi’s children sued their father, Roger Hollister, and Hollister’s wife, Rebecca Hollister. They alleged the three conspired to kill Patricia Kimmi. Roger Hollister was convicted of the murder. Rebecca Hollister was later dropped from the lawsuit.

Eugene Kimmi hasn’t been charged in his ex-wife’s death.

Also on Tuesday, a court record indicated Roger Hollister allowed a $200,000 judgment against him in favor of the Kimmi children.
