Hearing in pregnant teen death case delayed

October 27, 2006


— A Sedgwick County judge on Thursday rescheduled the arraignment hearing for two men charged in the death of a pregnant 14-year-old girl, giving their attorneys more time to talk to prosecutors before entering pleas.

Sedgwick County District Judge Ben Burgess set Nov. 29 for a new arraignment hearing for Elgin "Ray-Ray" Robinson Jr. and Theodore Burnett. Defense attorneys asked for additional time because of unspecified discussions with prosecutors.

The men are charged with capital murder and other offenses in the death of Chelsea Brooks.

During a preliminary hearing earlier this month, co-defendant Everett Le Gentry testified that Robinson wanted Chelsea killed because Robinson was the baby's father and the family wanted to prosecute him for statutory rape.
