Man accused of killing Kelsey Smith to be in court today

Edwin R. Hall, the man accused of killing Kelsey Smith, is scheduled to appear in court today.

Hall, 26, of Olathe, was charged a week ago with first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping.

Smith, 18, was kidnapped from an Overland Park Target as she was running an errand June 2. She was seen leaving the store about 7:10 p.m. Surveillance video showed a man sprinting up to her car and forcing her inside.

Hall's court appearance today is expected to be brief.
