MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The trial for a former Fort Riley soldier charged with killing a Kansas National Guard member on New Year’s Day in 2012 has been delayed for at least one day.
Jury selection for the first-degree murder trial of 26-year-old Daniel Parker was scheduled to begin Monday in Riley County District Court. KMAN reports (http://bit.ly/14ljCPp ) the trial was delayed because one of the attorneys had a medical emergency.
Parker is charged with killing 21-year-old Frederick Beverly outside a Manhattan motorcycle group’s clubhouse. Prosecutors say Parker fired from a passing car at the “Assasin Street Rydaz” clubhouse after having a disagreement earlier in the night with another member of the club.
Beverly was working the outside gate and was hit in the forehead by a bullet.
