Nola Foulston: Case against George Tiller suspect will be state, not federal

| June 1, 2009

WICHITA – District Attorney Nola Foulston said today that the case against the man in custody for the fatal shooting of abortion doctor George Tiller will be a state case, not a federal case.

"We have taken that jurisdiction, and this case will be a state case," Foulston said during a morning briefing outside the Sedgwick County Courthouse. "We may be getting assistance from outside federal individuals who may have been involved, however, the case is in this jurisdiction."

Foulston also said that there will be no court hearing today for the suspect, identified by law enforcement authorities as Scott P. Roeder, 51, of Merriam.
