Prosecutor eyes race track deaths

May 31, 2009


— A new prosecutor in Kansas plans to reopen an investigation into the deaths of two Muskogee residents who died after being run over at a Kansas racetrack in 2008.

Fifty-five-year-old Judy Brewster and 52-year-old James Jenkins were killed after being struck by a pickup truck in the parking lot of Heartland Park Topeka after a drag racing competition in June 2008.

The driver of the pickup truck — 63-year-old James Weiland of Truesdale, Iowa — was never cited in the accident.
