Sentencing date set for convicted murderer Kahler


– A Kansas jury has recommended that a former Greenville man be sentenced to death for killing four family members in November 2009.

The recommendation was issued Monday after hearing more testimony about 48-year-old James Kraig Kahler and his state of mind at the time of the fatal shootings. The judge set sentencing for Oct. 11.

Kahler was convicted Friday of four counts of capital murder in the killings of his estranged wife, their two teenage daughters and the wife's grandmother at the older woman's home in Burlingame, near Topeka.
