Family law and criminal law and a baseball bat.

A Kansas man was convicted of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, and contributing to a child’s misconduct for convincing his 12-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son to kill his ex-wife by beating her with a baseball bat.

From the Kansas City Star via Mississippi Family Law Blog:

The kids attacked their Mom, Dad came over to help the kids finish Mom off, and luckily Mom got away. The daughter was granted immunity to testify against her father. The son will be tried as a juvenile, according to the article.

The article also states that the attack was prompted by a child custody dispute. It doesn’t say, however, how long the dad will be in prison. Regardless, this family will never be the same.
