New trial possible for convicted murderer

Barbara Frantz

(KAIR)--A woman, convicted of murdering her estranged husband in Leavenworth, could get a new trial.

That comes as a judge schedules a hearing to consider a motion in the case of 53-year-old Barbara Frantz, of Kansas City, Kansas, who was convicted of first-degree murder last year.

The Leavenworth Times reports Frantz was accused of shooting the man in January, 2017, in a downtown Leavenworth parking lot.

She has not yet been sentenced, and remains held in the Leavenworth County Jail.

Her attorneys filed the motion for a new trial last week.

Assistant Leavenworth County Attorney Shawn Boyd told the newspaper Monday he plans to file a response to the motion, but that will take time.

The hearing on the motion is scheduled for November.
