$2M lawsuit filed in Hutchinson store robbery

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A convenience store clerk has filed a $2 million civil lawsuit against four men serving prison time for a Hutchinson robbery in which the clerk says she was beaten.

The Hutchinson News reports attorney Matt Bretz filed the lawsuit on behalf of Jo Dee Samples.

Authorities say Dakota Ney, Drake Lindsay and Karl Koenig, all 19, and 20-year-old Kurt Koenig robbed the Hutchinson Kwik Shop on Jan. 27 and attacked Samples. The lawsuit says Samples was beaten and a stun gun was used on her. Samples says she’ll likely be permanently disabled.

The men appeared in court Thursday. In written responses to the lawsuit, Karl Koenig said he did not assault the Samples during the robbery and asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed. Kurt Koenig and Lindsay deny the lawsuit’s allegations.

Ney didn’t file a response.
