Wellington Police Notes for Friday, March 7 to Sunday, March 9, 2014:March 07, 2014 Cueball
by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County District Court has appointed an attorney for Charles L. Kitch Jr., 33, of Wellington accused of the Feb. 23, 2014 attack of Wellington attorney Jack Potucek.
Kitch will be represented by Orsi Peter John II in Wichita. Usually, a Sumner County judge selects the court appointed attorney from a specific group working the criminal court docket at the courthouse. But because the attorneys have close working and social ties to Potucek, the judge elected to go with an out-of-town court appointed attorney.
Kitch is facing charges of aggravated burglary, a level 5 felony or the alternate charge of criminal trespass, a Class B misdemeanor. He is also charged with aggravated battery, a level 7 felony for an alleged attack on a Sunday morning (see story here.)March 07, 2014 Cueball
