OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A 24-year-old Olathe man has been accused of trying to kill his mother with a hammer.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/125Lh4Y ) that Majok Wany Anyit was charged Wednesday in Johnson County with attempted first-degree murder. A criminal complaint says Anyit is accused of hitting his mother several times in the head with a hammer Tuesday. The mother was hospitalized in critical condition.
Anyit's being held on $500,000 bond. Court records say he was assigned a public defender, but that office says it's unclear who's been assigned to the case.
Court records also show Anyit, who's from Sudan, was convicted in 2008 of assaulting a law enforcement officer and sentenced to six months in jail. He also was convicted of disorderly conduct in 2008 and sentenced to 21 days.
