Canadian charged with assuming brother’s identity

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Federal prosecutors have accused a Canadian man living in south-central Kansas of stealing the identity of a younger brother who died as an infant decades ago.

Trial for 58-year-old Leslie Lyle Camick, of Winfield, was rescheduled after a hearing Wednesday and is now set for Nov. 19.

The telecommunications field engineer has been indicted on charges including mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, immigration document fraud and lying to the U.S. Patent Office.

Prosecutors say Camick used his dead brother’s birth certificate to flee Canada in 2006 to avoid overdue child support, back taxes and other legal difficulties.
