KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Kansas City man who is seeking to be exonerated in a triple murder committed more than 40 years ago could get his chance to make his case to a judge in about a month.
KSHB-TV reports that Retired Missouri Court of Appeals Judge James Welsh set the evidentiary hearing for Kevin Strickland for Nov. 8 after a hearing Friday in Jackson County Court.
Both sides in the case have argued over discovery issues.
A conference will be held before the Nov. 8 hearing to be certain both sides have what they need for the hearing.
