KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) The house in Kingman that burned after a woman was killed has been demolished.
The two-story home of Vashti Forrest-Seacat was demolished Thursday, to the relief of neighbors. It had sat damaged and unusable since Seacat was killed in April 2011.
Her husband, Brett Seacat, was found guilty earlier this month of killing his wife and setting the house on fire before escaping with the couple’s two young sons. He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 5.
No plans for the lot have been announced. Neighbor Peggy Culver told KAKE-TV that nearby residents hope the land will become a park to honor Vashti Seacat and the two boys.
