By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) — Three of the four men charged in a March 2017 triple-homicide in north Topeka have all been bound over for trial.

On Wednesday, Shawnee Co. Dist. Judge Nancy Parrish ruled there was enough evidence for Brian Flowers, Joseph Lowry, and Shane Mays to stand trial for the March 12 killings

  • Flowers will face six of seven original charges, including two counts of felony murder, as well as kidnapping, assault, and robbery;
  • Lowry faces three murder charges and multiple other counts for kidnapping and assault;
  • Mays will face two premeditated murder charges.

All three are accused in the deaths of Luke Davis, Nicole Fisher, and Matthew Leavitt, who were all found dead in a home in the 100 block of Northwest Grant.

Parrish's ruling follows two days of dramatic testimony during which detectives and a claimed eyewitness detailed the slayings.

A fourth suspect in the murders, Joseph Krahn has a preliminary hearing set for November 16th.

CORRECTION: Initial reports indicated Joseph Lowry's last name was spelled 'Lowery.' This story has been updated to reflect the proper spelling.
