Murder Trial to Cost Labette County Thousands

Officials in a southeast Kansas county are preparing to add about $150,000 to the 2015 budget to cover the likely expenses of a capital murder trial. David C. Bennett Jr. is charged in Labette County with multiple counts in the killings of Cami Umbarger and her three children in Parsons last Nov. 25. The Kansas attorney general's office is prosecuting the case, but Labette County must pay for juror fees, witness travel, jury summonses and printing and mailing jury questionnaires. The total costs could reach $350,000 or more.
