OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) -- A forensic pathologist says an 18-month-old girl whose body was found last spring inside a suitcase in a creek in eastern Kansas had been fatally shot in the chest.

Dr. Erik Mitchell testified Wednesday at a pretrial hearing for Kyle Flack, who is accused in the death of that baby, Lana-Leigh Bailey.

Flack is also charged in the death of Lana-Leigh's mother, Kaylie Bailey, along with Andrew Stout and Steven Bailey. Their decomposing bodies were discovered in May at Stout's Ottawa farm.

Mitchell says the baby and the adults died of gunshot wounds. He says the adults were shot in the head and likely died instantly, but that the baby was shot in the chest and probably survived "at least a few seconds" before dying.
