Topekan accused of capital murder

November 22, 2012


— A 21-year-old Topeka man faces a new capital murder charge in the death of an 18-year-old Topeka woman.

Shawnee County Prosecutor Chad Taylor on Wednesday filed an amended criminal complaint against Dustin Leftwich, who’s accused of using a vehicle to kill Brenna Morgart in May. Leftwich has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and murdering charges.

The amended complaint includes the count of capital murder and the additional charge of rape. Leftwich had previously been charged with premeditated first-degree murder.
