The first-degree murder trial of a Wichita man accused of injecting another man with a lethal dose of meth before dumping his body in a field near K-96 and Hillside has been postponed.

Dang Sean, 32, was scheduled to stand trial this week in Sedgwick County District Court, but the trial was continued at the request of the defense. Prosecutors plan to seek a Hard 50 prison sentence if Sean is convicted. A new date for the trial has not been set.

Wichita police said Sean injected Shawn Lindsey, 34, with a lethal dose of meth while holding him captive in an auto repair shop at 118 S. Vine on Jan. 11, 2013. Prosecutors allege that Lindsey was killed to settle a debt that may have involved illegal drug transactions.
