A Franklin County judge says DNA testing should proceed in the case of a man accused of killing four people in rural Ottawa.

Franklin County District Judge Thomas H. Sachse issued an order this week in the capital murder case against 27-year-old Kyle Flack of Ottawa. He’s charged in the May deaths of 30-year-old Andrew Adam Stout, 31-year-old Steven Eugene White, 21-year-old Kaylie Kathleen Bailey, and Bailey’s 18-month-old daughter, Lana-Leigh.

Prosecutors sought the DNA testing of 13 items that could be used as evidence. The items haven’t been detailed and Sachse sealed the DNA testing order.

Attorneys for Flack argued in a hearing earlier this month that the defense wanted to inspect any items that could be destroyed by the testing.
