Nichols hearing rescheduled

By The Mercury

A preliminary hearing in Geary County District Court for a Kansas City man facing murder charges from incidents in Manhattan and Junction City was rescheduled earlier this week to July 9.

Anthony Nichols, 33, faces first-degree murder and aggravated robbery charges in connection to the shooting death of Anthony Nixon, 37, in the early morning hours of Sept. 7.

In Riley County District Court, Nichols is accused of shooting but failing to kill John Burroughs, 68, in Manhattan on Sept. 6 – just hours before Nichols traveled to Junction City.

Nichols’ preliminary hearing in Riley County is scheduled for July 16.
