Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday in the trial of a Wichita man charged with murder in a stabbing death in College Hill Park that Wichita police said was a case of vigilante justice.

Kyle A. Carter, 31, is standing trial in the death of Carl A. Cooper, a 34-year-old parolee who was chased down by two men after breaking into a BMW on the morning of Sept. 8. Carter admits chasing Cooper but contends that his co-defendant, Trenton H. Custer, 35, is the one who stabbed him. Custer is scheduled to stand trial in July.

Among the witnesses testifying Wednesday was Michelle Wilmore, who owned the BMW.

A former Augusta police officer convicted of a child sex crime will be subject to lifetime post-release supervision, a Butler County judge ruled Monday.

But the supervision is just a “potential sanction” that would be imposed only if Jerry D. Ballinger violates his probation and is forced to serve his underlying prison sentence of 34 months, Butler County Attorney Darrin Devinney said.

Ballinger, 45, is in the early stages of serving five years’ probation after he was sentenced April 7 on one count of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with child. A defense motion asking the court to find lifetime post-release supervision unconstitutional prompted a Butler County judge to delay ruling on the matter until Monday.

Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a 30-year-old Wichita man, suspected in a number of residential burglaries, after he crashed a stolen truck while fleeing a Derby business, an official said Wednesday.

Sheriff’s Capt. Greg Pollock said investigators had focused on the man as a suspect in burglaries occurring in southern Sedgwick County in late March.

The effort to arrest the man resulted from a process known as intelligence-led policing, Pollock said. The process involves use of intelligence information that is gathered, sifted and shared and a top-down approach in focusing on a suspect, Pollock said. It also involves some computer analysis. “These tools have assisted us in identifying and targeting prolific and serious criminals,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Wednesday.
