WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Carr brothers victims’ families oppose 2 judge’s retention
The Wichita Eagle reports that Kansans for Justice wants voters to remove justices Lee Johnson and Eric Rosen from the court in November. They think the court botched Jonathan and Reginald Carr’s appeal when it ruled that the brothers should have had separate sentencing hearings.
Authorities said the Carr brothers broke into a Wichita home, sexually assaulted some of the victims and forced them to withdraw money from ATMs before shooting them. One of the five people shot survived and went for help.
Johnson and Rosen are the only court members up for retention this year.
