Suspect in Kansas police detective's death out of hospital
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The man accused of killing Kansas City, Kansas, police detective Brad Lancaster is out of the hospital.
Curtis Ayers was taken into custody by Jackson County, Missouri, authorities after being taken from the hospital Monday. He had been hospitalized since he was shot by Kansas City, Missouri, police several hours after Lancaster was fatally shot May 9 near the Kansas Speedway.
The Kansas City Star reports that Ayers was wearing Lancaster's handcuffs when he was escorted from the hospital.
He is charged in Wyandotte County, Kansas, with capital murder in Lancaster's death. Ayers also faces charges in Jackson County, Missouri, and Leavenworth County, Kansas.
Authorities said Monday they do not know when Ayers will go to court or whether he will waive extradition to Kansas.
