OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) -- A Franklin County judge has granted a second request by prosecutors for DNA testing on evidence in the capital murder case of a man accused of killing four people in eastern Kansas.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1bmkQf3 ) that Franklin County District Judge Thomas H. Sachse granted the request last week in the state's case against 28-year-old Kyle T. Flack, of Ottawa. He was charged with capital murder, first-degree murder, rape and other charges after the bodies of three adults and an 18-month-old girl were found at an Ottawa area farm house in May.

Flack's court-appointed lawyer, Ron Evans, objects to the testing because some items that could otherwise be used as evidence could be destroyed in testing.

In July, Sachse granted prosecutors' requests for DNA testing on 13 other items.
