TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A convicted murderer has lost a motion for a continuance in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by the children of his victim.

Roger Hollister is serving a life sentence for the 2009 murder of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton.

Kimmi's children in September sued Hollister. They also are suing their father, Eugene Kimmi, and Hollister's wife, Rebbeca Hollister. They claim the three conspired to kill Patricia Kimmi.

Hollister is the only person charged or convicted in the case.

Hollister sought a continuance in March because he wanted to hire an attorney.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Sunday (http://bit.ly/JNYpWI ) that an Atchison County judge denied the motion, saying Hollister has made no effort to hire an attorney.

Hollister is now scheduled for a deposition in June.
