The Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty released the following statement after James Kraig Kahler was sentenced to death today:
We regret the loss of the lives of Karen, Emily, and Lauren Kahler and Dorothy Wight. Sentencing Kraig Kahler to death will not restore their lives. It will not bring peace to the remaining family members or the traumatized local community. Public safety could have been achieved with the alternative sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
