A Feb. 10 trial date was set Wednesday for a prison inmate who faces involuntary commitment as a sexual predator.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office alleges that David B. Murr has a history of sexual activities that demonstrate that he is likely to engage in repeat acts of sexual violence if he is returned to society. He was scheduled to be released from the Lansing Correctional Facility on Sunday.

Murr, 62, was convicted in Sedgwick County in 1993 of rape, aggravated sodomy and aggravated kidnapping. Murr waived his right to a probable cause hearing on Wednesday and agreed to be taken to the Larned State Hospital to be evaluated.
