3 teens to stand trial in Salina man’s death

April 2, 2011


— Three 19-year-old Salina men have been ordered to stand trial in the death of a 48-year-old man, while charges have been dropped against a fourth man.

Robert Unselt had been involved in a fight with several young people outside a Salina home on Jan. 9. He died that night.

A preliminary autopsy showed Unselt died of repeated blows that caused massive head trauma.

Unselt’s wife said she saw three people beating her husband and running away after he collapsed.

The Salina Journal reported that the three men who were ordered Friday to stand trial are Tyeler D. Cookson, Xavier E. Lewis and Justin R. Taddiken. They are scheduled to enter pleas May 2.

Charges were dropped Thursday afternoon against Michael B. Bulman, also 19.
