MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) A preliminary hearing resumes Thursday afternoon for two suspects in the death of a Tabor College football player.
The hearing for Alton Franklin and DeQuinte Flournoy began last week. But it was continued to give prosecutors time to search for a key witness to a fight that led to the death of 26-year-old Brandon Brown. The redshirt defensive lineman from Tabor College was found unconscious Sept. 16 at a McPherson party and died about a week later.
The suspects both are former McPherson College football players. They're charged with being accessories to second-degree murder.
The missing witness moved back to Texas after the case was delayed in October and a subpoena to compel him to testify was returned earlier this month as undeliverable.
