WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas man convicted of killing a 14-year-old girl in 2006 is awaiting a Sedgwick County judge's ruling on his request for a new trial.
An attorney for Elgin ``Ray Ray'' Robinson argued in Sedgwick County Court Wednesday that his client deserves a new trial because he did not have adequate defense during his trial for killing Chelsea Brooks. The girl disappeared from a Wichita skating rink. Her body was found later in a Butler County field.
Prosecutors argued Wednesday that Robinson received adequate representation.
The Kansas Supreme Court upheld Robinson's convictions for capital murder and other charges in 2012. His current appeal was filed in civil court.
