GIRARD, Kan. (AP) _ A Crawford County judge has ordered that convicted murderer Gary Kleypas remain in the county jail pending his likely death sentence in December.

That's not sitting well with some who worry that Kleypas should be in a maximum security state prison and Crawford County taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for his stay.

A Wyandotte County jury earlier this month recommended the death penalty for Kleypas who was convicted of the 1996 stabbing death of Carrie Williams, 20.

Kleypas was scheduled to go back to the maximum security prison in El Dorado. But Judge Donald Noland issued a court order keeping Kleypas where he is until his sentencing on December 3rd.
