Abortion records sent to Kline

WICHITA | Attorneys for abortion doctor George Tiller claim patient files and other abortion documents were mailed to former prosecutor Phill Kline's new address in Lynchburg, Va.

Attorneys for Tiller contend in an affidavit filed Thursday that the box was mailed from the Johnson County district attorney's office by an unknown employee on Kline's last full day as district attorney.

The box was returned by the U.S. Postal Service to the Johnson County DA's office due to insufficient address.

Neither Kline nor the Kansas attorney general's office immediately returned messages.

Defense attorneys argue Kline's persistence bolsters their request that the court dismiss charges against Tiller or suppress evidence because of outrageous prosecutorial conduct.
