HOLTON, Kan. (AP) — The first trial has started for a man who is charged with sexually assaulting a teenager and five women in a case that has divided the small Kansas town of Holton.
The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/2ok5d6K ) reports that the trial focuses on claims that 22-year-old Jacob Ewing sexually assaulted the teen in a rural cemetery. He's charged with aggravated indecent liberties and aggravated criminal sodomy with a child under 14 years old.
Ewing has entered not guilty pleas in all the cases. The charges involving the five women will be tried separately.
