Court to hold money made on Rader home

A judge has ordered the proceeds from the Monday auction of Dennis Rader's house in Park City to be deposited with the Sedgwick County District Court clerk.

District Judge Karl Friedel's order on Friday came after a hearing asked for by lawyers representing the husband and children of Vicki Wegerle, who was killed in September 1986. Rader last week said Wegerle was one of the 10 people he killed as the serial killer BTK. The Wegerle family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Rader this week, and believes it may be entitled to a portion of the proceeds from the sale.

The money paid for the house, minus expenses and commissions due McCurdy Auction and Realty Service, will be deposited with the clerk until the court issues further orders.
