HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A 31-year-old man serving time in prison for second-degree murder, two counts of aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary out of Sedgwick County will face trial on April 16.
Daquan Dean is charged with three counts of battery of a corrections officer for an altercation on July 1, 2015, while he was housed at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility. One of the victims was a doctor at the facility, another was a female juvenile correctional facility officer and the third a correctional officer at the prison.
His defense attorney says they will go to trial. It has been difficult to prepare a defense because Dean is being housed at the Lansing Correctional Facility. Reno County District Judge Tim Chambers ordered that Dean be housed at the Reno County Correctional Facility until after the trial.
Dean is not eligible for parole until September 2022 from the Sedgwick County case. If convicted, any sentence would run consecutively to that case.
