Lincoln Murder Case Prelim Rescheduled

Deadly ShootingA preliminary hearing in a second-degree murder case involving the son of a Kansas sheriff has been postponed.

The hearing for Scott Weigel was scheduled Tuesday in Lincoln County District Court but it was rescheduled to November 25. The 33-year-old Weigel is charged in the September 9 shooting death of 21-year-old Keith Ancell of Lincoln.

Lincoln County Attorney Jennifer O'Hare asked that the hearing be delayed to provide attorneys more time to review the evidence.

Weigel is being held in a jail outside of Lincoln County. His bond is $750,000. He is the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel.
