OTTAWA — Jurors have recommended the death penalty for an eastern Kansas man convicted of killing four people, including a toddler.
The Franklin County jury recommended the sentence Thursday for 30-year-old Kyle Flack, who was convicted last week of capital murder in the deaths of 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey and her 18-month-old daughter, Lana.
He also was convicted of premeditated first-degree murder for killing 31-year-old Steven White and second-degree murder for killing 30-year-old Andrew Stout.
They were killed on separate days in the spring of 2013 near a rural farmhouse where Flack sometimes stayed in Ottawa, about 50 miles southwest of Kansas City.
Prosecutors say it’s unclear what led to the shootings. The adults’ bodies were found at the farm, while the child’s body was found in a suitcase floating in a creek.
