OTTAWA, Kan. — A man accused of murder in the slaying of four people, including an 18-month-old girl, at a farm in rural eastern Kansas will face the testimony of dozens of witnesses during a preliminary hearing set to begin Tuesday.

Kyle Trevor Flack, 28, has been charged with capital murder, first-degree murder and attempted rape in the killings last May. The bodies of Andrew Stout, Steven White and Kaylie Bailey were discovered at Stout's farm in Ottawa, about 50 miles southwest of Kansas City. Investigators found the body of Bailey's toddler, Lana Leigh Bailey, a few days later in neighboring Osage County.

Franklin County Judge Thomas H. Sachse will decide after the hearing if prosecutors have enough evidence to warrant a trial. If Flack, who's being held in lieu of $10 million bond, is convicted of capital murder in the deaths of Bailey and her child, he could face the death penalty.

Prosecutors have not indicated whether they intend to seek the death penalty. No one has been executed in Kansas since 1965.
