Trial Reset for Liberal Man Charged with Hurting Kids

KSCB News - October 25, 2012 6:04 am

LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) – A new trial date has been scheduled for a 31-year-old Liberal man who’s charged with trying to kill his three children.

Irineo Garcia of Liberal has pleaded not guilty to three counts of attempted first-degree murder. He’s scheduled to stand trial February 11th in Seward County District Court.

The Hutchinson News reports that a psychological evaluation delayed Garcia’s trial, which initially was scheduled for last February.

He’s accused of trying to kill his three children, then ages 5, 6 and 7, in 2010. Prosecutors say he also tried to kill himself. The children and Garcia were found injured at their home after his estranged wife notified police.

Officers found him bleeding outside the home and the children inside. They have all recovered from their injuries.
