KU player Martin charged with aggravated robbery


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas football player Chris Martin and two other men are charged with aggravated robbery after a home invasion in Lawrence.

Martin, former football player Jeremiah Letrell Edwards, of Garland Texas; and Joshua Edwards of Lawrence were charged Thursday. Prosecutors allege they took cash and marijuana after pointing a gun at two people at the home on May 13.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/10MXzPm ) prosecutors sought $50,000 bond for each man but a judge set bond at $35,000.

Martin’s attorney, Chris Joseph, said his client was not a danger to the community and intended to do everything he could to continue his career at Kansas.

The men’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 6.

Martin, a junior defensive end, transferred to Kansas this year but hasn’t played for the Jayhawks.
