Hearing For Man Accused of Kidnapping, Killing O.P. Teen

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ A hearing is scheduled for the man accused
of kidnapping an 18-year-old woman from an Overland Park parking
lot, then raping and strangling her.

Edwin Hall is charged with capital murder in last summer's death
of Kelsey Smith of Overland Park. Smith was last seen on video
leaving a Target store, four days before her body was found.

Defense attorney Paul Cramm wants Johnson County Judge Peter
Ruddick to throw out fingerprint evidence prosecutors say they have
against Hall.

Cramm says investigators found at least 29 partial prints on
Smith's car. Cramm says the method used to link one of the prints
to Hall is subjective and untested.
Hall's trial is set for Sept. 16.
