OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) _ Pretrial hearings in the case of a man accused of killing four people on an Ottawa farm are expected to stretch into 2014.

A Franklin County judge on Monday set a schedule of pretrial hearings for 27-year-old Kyle Flack of Ottawa that will take more than seven months.

Flack is charged with capital murder and several other charges in the deaths of two men, a woman and her 18-month-old daughter in May.

During a hearing Monday, Franklin County District Judge Thomas H. Sachse said some documents filed in the case could be open to the public.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the judge also said he will rule later this week on whether prosecutors can order DNA testing that might destroy several potential pieces of evidence in the case.
