WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The killer of a Wichita abortion provider faces a disciplinary hearing over accusations he tried to intimidate the woman who reopened his closed abortion clinic.
Monday's closed hearing against Scott Roeder is being held at the state prison in Lansing where he is imprisoned.
The Kansas Department of Corrections said Friday the administrative charge was prompted by a letter from Ann Swegle, one of the prosecutors in Roeder's murder case. The letter asked whether the department planned any administrative action over a YouTube video of a jailhouse call with Roeder.
In the jailhouse call posted on YouTube in April, Roeder says reopening Tiller's clinic is almost like putting a target on your back.
Roeder is serving a life sentence for killing George Tiller in May 2009 at a Wichita church.
