One of two men arrested in the Sept. 8 stabbing death of a burglary suspect in College Hill Park had no idea at the time that his co-defendant had stabbed the victim, a defense lawyer told a jury Tuesday.

Kyle A. Carter, 31, is standing trial this week for first-degree murder in the death of Carl Cooper, 32, who died several hours after collapsing on a doorstep in the 300 block of South Clifton about 3:30 a.m. Carter and his co-defendant, Trenton Custer, 34, are both charged with first-degree murder.

Wichita police said Carter and Custer were acting as vigilantes on the morning of Sept. 8 when Cooper broke into a BMW that was parked in the driveway of a home the men were visiting in the 400 block of South Clifton. Carter chased the suspect on foot, police said, while Custer went after him in his pickup. One of the men stabbed Custer three times in the lower back during a confrontation near the park’s swimming pool.

A Kansas man charged with first-degree murder is afraid the tattooed mirror-image letters spelling out the word "murder" across his neck might prejudice a jury, so he is asking for a professional tattoo artist to remove or cover it up.

Prosecutors say they aren't opposed to Jeffrey Chapman covering his tattoo, but Barton County's sheriff says he's against transporting Chapman to a licensed tattoo facility — the only places tattoo artists are allowed to practice under Kansas law.

The Great Bend Tribune reports Chapman's trial is scheduled to start Monday in the November 2011 killing of Damon Galliart, whose body was found by hunters in a roadside ditch southwest of Great Bend.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers began picking juries Monday in two Sedgwick County murder trials.

Jason Jones, 38, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shawn Lindsey, 34, whose body was found Jan. 16, 2013, by surveyors in a field near K-96 and Hillside. Prosecutors said Jones and two other men injected Lindsey with a lethal dose of meth to settle a debt. If convicted, Jones could face a Hard 50 prison sentence. District Judge Bruce Brown will preside at the trial.

In the other case, Kyle A. Carter, 31, is charged in the Sept. 8 death of Carl A. Cooper, 32, who was stabbed to death in College Hill Park after a resident saw him breaking into her car. Carter was one of two men who were visiting the woman when the break-in occurred, and police said they confronted Cooper after chasing him into the park. District Judge Warren Wilbert is presiding at that trial.
