WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has delayed the trial of a Canadian man living in south-central Kansas on charges of stealing the identity of an infant brother who died decades ago.
U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Thursday set a Jan. 28 trial date for 58-year-old Leslie Lyle Camick, of Winfield.
The trial had been scheduled for Nov. 19 but prosecutors sought a delay, citing the complexity and logistics of a case where witnesses and documents span two countries.
Camick, a telecommunications field engineer, was indicted in March. He's charged with mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, immigration document fraud and lying to the U.S. Patent Office.
Prosecutors say Camick used his dead brother's birth certificate to flee Canada in 2006 to avoid overdue child support, back taxes and other legal difficulties.
