WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Prosecutors intend to seek a Hard 50 sentence in the trial of a 32-year-old Wichita man accused of injecting another man with a lethal dose of meth before dumping his body in a field.

Dang Sean, who's being held on a $1 million bond, is scheduled to stand trial beginning Tuesday for first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping in the Jan. 11 death of 34-year-old Shawn Lindsey. Surveyors found Lindsey's body five days later.

The Wichita Eagle reported (http://bit.ly/1e1wL9Z) that in their notice to seek a sentence of life without parole for 50 years, prosecutors said the crime was committed in an especially heinous, atrocious or cruel manner.

Sean is one of six men charged in the case.

Sean's lawyer said in court papers his client will present an alibi defense.
