MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The second trial for a Kansas man whose capital murder charge has been delayed.
The Manhattan Mercury reports Luis Aguirre of Ogden on Tuesday gave up his right to a speedy trial in the deaths of his ex-girlfriend, Tanya Maldonado, and their 13-month-old son, Juan Maldonado. A new status hearing was scheduled for May 26.
Aguirre was convicted of the killings in 2012. The victims were killed in September 2009 at Aguirre’s apartment in Ogden. Their bodies were buried in shallow graves after prosecutors say Maldonado demanded Aguirre pay child support.
The Kansas Supreme Court last May overturned Aguirre’s conviction after ruling that that police violated his Miranda rights during an interrogation.
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to review that decision.
