KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The families of two Kansas sheriff's deputies who were overpowered by an inmate and killed have hired legal counsel to help prosecutors.
The Kansas City Star reports that husband-and-wife law partners, Tom and Tricia Bath, were retained to assist the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office in the prosecution of 30-year-old Antoine Fielder. He is charged with capital murder in the deaths of Theresa King and Patrick Rohrer last June. In Kansas, the intentional, premeditated killing of a single law enforcement officer is eligible for the death penalty.
