LENEXA, Kansas — A Lenexa man will stand trial on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of a man and his stepfather.
Alex Brune was bound over for trial Monday after a preliminary hearing into the deaths of 47-year-old Brian Baskind and his 79-year-old stepfather, Clifford Preston. Brune's attorney entered not guilty pleas for him.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1HStZCp ) the men were stabbed in their Lenexa home last summer. Bruce was found shortly after the shooting with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He told investigators that he was kidnapped and was shot after stabbing both men while trying to escape.
Prosecutors allege the men were killed during a burglary and attempted robbery. Brune is also charged with aggravated burglary and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.
