Mistrial for three accused in triple killing in downtown Lawrence

November 09, 2018 - 9:50 am

The trials of three suspects in a shooting that left three dead and two wounded in downtown area of Lawrence have been halted. The Lawrence Journal-World reports jury selection was underway Thursday when Douglas County District Court Judge Sally Pokorny sent everyone home. She said the mistrial was because of a legal matter but didn't elaborate.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys also declined to answer questions about the decision to stop the trials of 21-year-old Anthony Roberts Jr., 23-year-old Ahmad Rayton, and 20-year-old Dominique McMillon. Roberts is charged with three murder counts and one attempted-murder count in the October 2017 shooting. Rayton faces less serious charges that include attempted murder, while the charges against McMillon include aggravated assault.
