WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday upheld the conviction of a former police instructor accused of killing his wife and setting their house on fire to cover it up as their two young sons slept down the hall.The high court ruled that the trial judge properly barred Brett Seacat from testifying that his wife, Vashti Seacat, had previously tried to kill herself, which might have bolstered the defense theory that she set the fire and took her own life.
