TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The wife of a man convicted of killing a rural Kansas woman is asking for compensation after her name was dropped from a wrongful death lawsuit.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the children of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton filed a wrongful death lawsuit more than a year ago.

It named their estranged father, Eugene Kimmi; Roger Hollister; and Hollister's wife, Rebecca Hollister. The lawsuit claimed the three conspired to cause Patricia Kimmi's death.

Hollister's husband, Roger, is serving life in prison for the 2009 killing. But an Atchison County ruled earlier this month that the plaintiffs had presented no evidence to prove Rebecca Hollister was involved.

A motion filed late last week on behalf of Rebecca Hollister asks the court for sanctions, including expenses and attorneys' fees.
