Kan. deputy’s killed seeks to recover cash

NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man serving a life sentence for killing a sheriff’s deputy is trying to recover more than $4,500 in cash seized from his home on the day of the shooting.

The Newton Kansan reports (http://bit.ly/15jxkDs ) that Gregory Moore has filed a motion seeking the cash in Sedgwick County District Court. Moore was tried there on a change of venue from Harvey County, where Sheriff’s Deputy Kurt Ford was shot and killed in April 2005.

Moore’s efforts aren’t sitting well with members of the Harvey County Commission. They asked county attorney David Yoder this week to explore placing a lien on the money.

Yoder estimates the county spent about $30,000 prosecuting Moore for killing Ford, wounding a second officer, firing at three other officers and kidnapping a woman.
