Day 3: A sick juror and mistrial request makes for an interesting Friday in Brad Aue murder trial

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow – A sick juror and a request for a mistrial summed up a strange third day at the Bradley Aue murder trial at the Sumner County Courthouse.

District Judge William Mott excused the jury early this afternoon after one juror got sick. The trial will resume on Monday at 9 a.m.

Aue is accused of second-degree murder in the May 24, 2018 death of Sierra Craft at his home at 1002 N. F Street in Wellington.

Mott had a dilemma late Friday afternoon. Both the prosecution and defense had not quite finished questioning expert witness Eric Moore, forensic scientist with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Moore’s testimony is considered by many to be the crux of this trial as he dealt with the blood evidence surrounding the location of the alleged murder.

CultureCow: This week makes you miss Acid Rap and Django Unchained

by Devin McCue, Sumner Newcow — After three projects, one of which won a Grammy, it’s hard to understand why newlywed Chance the Rapper was able to call his new album the Big Day his debut.

Apparently, he can do that, however, because this is technically his first “album” with his label.  Did you know Chance got married?  Well if you didn’t, you can’t help that but have it beat into your brain after listening to this sprawling collection of songs about his “big day” (not even a little bit subtle).

We always knew Chance the Rapper (who is married) was a little too preachy and was prone to long-drawn-out pieces about god or the woman in his life, but the Big Day, unfortunately, takes that to a new level and Chance’s ability as a lyricist is lost behind his album’s concept.
