Hollister Request

A Sabetha Kansas man convicted of capital murder in the death of a rural Horton woman is seeking a new trial.

An attorney for 60-year-old Roger Hollister says he deserves a new trial because the Atchison County judge who heard his case did not properly instruct jurors. Hollister is serving life in prison with no chance of parole for the November 2009 death of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi. Hollister's attorney argued in a court motion that evidence presented in the trial was insufficient, errors were made in closing arguments and other errors deprived Hollister of a fair trial. The Atchison County attorney said he would file a response to the motion within 30 days or request an extension.
