OTTAWA, Kan. -- A man who faces the death penalty for a quadruple murder last year appeared in Franklin County Court Tuesday.
Kyle Flack is charged with capital murder in the death of a mother and her 18-month-old daughter.
Flack also faces two counts of first degree murder. He's accused of also killing Andrew Stout and Steven White.
In court Tuesday, Flack was represented by Tim Frieden of the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit.
The 28-year-old man is accused of murdering and raping Kaylie Bailey and killing two other men, whose bodies were found on an Ottawa farm in the spring of 2013. Investigators also found the body of Bailey's baby, Lana, nearby.
Lawyers argued about whether statements concerning the crimes that Flack allegedly made to people other than law enforcement could be used against him.
Flack has previously been convicted and served time in prison for attempted murder.
In addition to the capital charges, Flack faces the so-called "Hard 50" sentence if convicted on each of the two first degree murder counts. He also faces a charge of being a criminal in possession of a firearm.
He scheduled to be back in court in February 2015.
