WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors in Kansas say a Canadian man accused of assuming his dead brother's identity left a trail of evidence.
The government filed a notice Wednesday outlining evidence it plans to introduce at the Jan. 28 trial of Leslie Lyle Camick. The Winfield resident faces charges including aggravated identity theft, retaliation against a witness and wire fraud.
Prosecutors allege Camick hatched a scheme in 1997 to assume the identity of an infant brother who died decades ago and flee Canada, where he owed child support and was wanted in a criminal case. He first came to the U.S. in 2000 and built a life under the identity of Wayne Camick.
He's accused of obtaining official identification documents, opening bank accounts and taking out patents all under the false identity.
