TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Supreme Court will hear arguments in the capital murder cases of two men on death row.

The high court said Monday that the justices will hear oral arguments Dec. 17 in the cases of brothers Jonathan Carr and Reginald Carr, who were sentenced to death in December 2002 after they kidnapped five people from a Wichita home in 2000 and fatally shot four of them. A fifth person also was shot but survived.

The Carrs also were convicted of murder in the death of a woman shot four days before the soccer field slayings.

The state Supreme Court overturned the state's death penalty law in 2004. That ruling was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which upheld Kansas' capital punishment statute and returned the Carrs to death row.
