Topeka Man to Stand Trial


TOPEKA, Kan.-- A Topeka man will stand trial in the shooting of a Clay Center woman- but on a lesser charge than prosecutors sought.

The Clay Center Dispatch reports a judge Friday bound Tracey Hackey over on a charge of second degree attempted murder.

He was charged with attempted first degree murder but the paper says Judge Bill Malcolm ruled evidence of premeditation was lacking.

Hackney is accused in the December fourth shooting of Terry Buskirk in Clay Center.

Hackney's arraignment is set for Wednesday.
