U.S. Supreme Court to hear Kahler death penalty appeal

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office reported today that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of James Kraig Kahler. An Osage County jury convicted Kahler of killing his two teenage daughters, his wife, and her grandmother at Burlingame, Kan., in 2009, and recommended he be sentenced to death.

The Kansas Supreme Court affirmed Kahler’s conviction and death sentence in February 2018. Today the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear Kahler’s appeal from the Kansas Supreme Court decision.

In his appeal to the Kansas Supreme Court, Kahler raised 10 issues, including allegations of misconduct by the prosecutor and trial judge, challenges to the instructions given to the jury, and an argument the death penalty is unconstitutional when applied to a person who has a severe mental illness at the time he or she committed a crime.

Former Kansas EMT sentenced to probation for stealing morphine

WICHITA, Kan. – A former emergency medical technician in Jackson County, Kan., was sentenced Tuesday to five years on federal probation for stealing morphine from vials, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has reported.

Colby W. VanWagoner, 33, Mayetta, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of obtaining a controlled substance by deception and one count of making a false statement during an investigation. One condition of his release is he not engage in any occupation that would give him access to controlled substances without prior approval from his probation officer. He also must complete an approved substance abuse program.

The crimes took place while VanWagoner was working for the Jackson County Emergency Medical Service, in Holton, Kan. In his plea, VanWagoner admitted he tampered with vials of morphine sulfate. He replaced morphine with saline solution and put the vials back into narcotic boxes on ambulances and in office stocks. Tests showed the concentration of morphine in vials that had been tampered with was low as 1 percent or less. The concentration of morphine should have been 100 percent.
