July 02, 2020 - 6:53 pm

The Kansas Court of Appeals has overturned the murder conviction of a man who killed one person outside a Eudora bar and tried to kill two others. 

Danny Queen, 39, was serving 19 years in prison for the June 2017 death of Bo Hopson, 32. He also was sentenced for trying to kill two other bar patrons.

The appeals court on Thursday overturned Queen's convictions and vacated his sentences because the Douglas County District Court believed the trial for a speedy trial was a month later than it actually was. 

Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson says he will ask the Kansas Supreme Court to review the case.
