Lawyer: Appleby didn't mean to kill Kemp

During opening statements this morning, Benjamin Appleby's attorney acknowledged that Appleby killed Ali Kemp at a Leawood pool in 2002. But, he added, Appleby didn't mean to kill her, so he shouldn't be found guilty of premeditated murder.

The prosecutor, meanwhile, says Appleby intentionally killed Kemp after she wouldn't have sex with him.

Diane Carroll's update from the courthouse is here.
