GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) A man charged with killing a 14-year-old Great Bend girl is due in court as a judge considers his request to move the trial out of Barton County.
The motion by attorneys for 37-year-old Adam Longoria is among a bevy of filings expected to be taken up during a hearing Wednesday in Barton County District Court. Longoria is scheduled to go on trial March 26 on charges of capital murder and sexual crimes for the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt.
The girl’s burned body was found at an asphalt plant near Great Bend where Longoria worked.
Other pending motions deal with evidence, jury issues and trial proceedings.
Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty, although the capital murder charge remains. Longoria faces life in prison without parole if convicted.
