Default Separate trials ordered for 4 defendants in Kansas gun shop killing

Separate trials ordered for 4 defendants in Kansas gun shop killing
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -

The four men charged with killing the co-owner of a suburban Kansas City gun store during a robbery will have separate trials.

A Johnson County judge on Thursday granted a motion from two of the defendants, Londro Patterson and De'Anthony Wiley, seeking separate trials.

The Kansas City Star reports prosecutors wanted Patterson and Wiley tried to together but did not object to separate trials for the other defendants, Hakeem Malik and Nicquan Midgyettt.

The four men are charged with first-degree murder in the January 2015 shooting death of Jon Bieker. He died while defending his wife at the She's A Pistol gun store in Shawnee.

Three of the four alleged robbers were wounded.

Trial dates haven't been set.

Black 'suspect' shot while robbing Shawnee gun store released from hospital - looking forward to him getting death penalty
OLATHE, KS - One of the four suspects in a shooting at a Shawnee gun shop that left one of the owners dead is now out of the hospital. Nicquan Midgyett, 19, is now booked into the Johnson County Jail on first-degree murder charges. Londro E. Patterson, 20, and De'Anthony A. Wiley, 19, still remained hospitalized. Each has a bond of $500,000. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe charged Midgyett and three other men in the death of Jon Bieker who was killed when three gunmen burst into his gun store in downtown Shawnee. Bieker's wife, Becky Bieker, was punched in the face but has been released from the hospital. Hakeem W. Malik, 18, appeared before a Johnson County judge on Monday. He requested a court-appointed attorney during his brief court appearance. Malik was the only suspect not shot during Friday's botched robbery. Authorities said they believe he was the getaway driver and was waiting outside. Howe said anyone who aids someone else in commission of a crime "is equally as guilty." - (Black-on-white)
