OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) – A prosecutor is seeking the death penalty against a 28-year-old man accused in the fatal shooting of four people at a rural eastern Kansas farm.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Kyle Flack stood silent during his arraignment Tuesday as District Judge Eric Godderz entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Flack is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 30-year-old Andrew Stout and 31-year-old Steven White at the property in Ottawa. He is charged with capital murder in the deaths of 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey and her 18-month-old daughter, Lana-Leigh Bailey.

Franklin County prosecutor Stephen Hunting filed a motion seeking the death penalty in connection with the deaths of Bailey and her daughter.

All four were fatally shot in late April or early May last year.
