2nd mistrial declared after man attacks attorney

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jackson County prosecutors have filed a brief asking that a man charged with killing three people not be allowed at his murder trial after he attacked his public defender in a Kansas City courtroom earlier this week.

Derek T. Hubbard, 49, is charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder for the November 2011 deaths of his girlfriend, her cousin and the cousin's wife.

His trial was scheduled to begin this week but is now slated to start on Monday after courtroom outbursts Monday and Tuesday forced Circuit Judge Justine Del Muro to declare mistrials on consecutive days, The Kansas City Star reported.

In both incidents, Hubbard began yelling that he was the victim of a conspiracy that involved Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forte, a childhood friend of one of the victims, Anthony Carlos Richardson.

Prosecutors say Hubbard and his girlfriend, Stephanie Brown, were at the home of Anthony and Mary Richardson when Hubbard became upset, pulled out a gun and started hitting Brown.

Anthony Richardson intervened to protect Brown, his cousin, and after a brief fight Hubbard shot and killed all three people, prosecutors said.
