Kleypas to Remain in Crawford County Jail

By  | 

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
20-year-old Carrie Williams.

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.
