MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) _ A preliminary hearing for two suspects in the death of a Tabor College football player was continued because prosecutors are searching for a key witness.
Former McPherson College football players Alton Franklin and DeQuinte Flournoy, both 19, are charged in the death last September of 26-year-old Brandon Brown, a redshirt defensive lineman for Tabor.
Brown died about a week after being found unconscious after a fight at a party in McPherson on Sept. 16.
The Hutchinson News reports four witnesses testified Monday before the hearing was postponed until Jan. 31 while prosecutors locate Taajon Richardson, a witness at the fight. He moved back to Texas and prosecutors say a subpoena for Richardson was returned as undeliverable two weeks ago.
