News Minute: Here is the latest Kansas news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Supreme Court has overturned the death sentences of Jonathan and Reginald Carr because the presiding judge did not hold separate sentencing proceedings for each man. Justices narrowly rejected the brothers' claim that their convictions should also be overturned. They were sent to death row for shooting four people to death on a snow-covered soccer field in Wichita more than 13 years ago. The Carrs will get new sentencing hearings.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 10-month-old Kansas girl has died after being strapped for more than two hours inside a sweltering car and police say a foster parent has told officers he forgot about her until something on TV jogged his memory. The man has been booked but not charged in the case. He and his partner have been trying to adopt the girl. They have three other foster children and two adopted ones.

MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) - Two people killed in a wreck north of McPherson have been identified as Minnesota residents. The highway patrol says Gary and Kay Pautz died Thursday when their SUV collided with a passing vehicle, swerved off Interstate 135, crashed and burned.

KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) - Engineers are trying to determine why an old, vacant building partially collapsed in downtown Kingman. No other buildings were damaged when part of the 100-year-old building came down Thursday but the block has been closed off. The building failed an inspection last week.
