TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear several cases that involve Kansas this month.

The Kansas Attorney General's office says Kansas has a role in 11 of 53 cases expected to be heard by the Supreme Court during the upcoming term. Nine of the 11 cases don't involve Kansas as a direct party, but the state filed briefs in the cases.

Among the Kansas cases directly affecting Kansas is one regarding a state court decision overturning the conviction of Scott Cheever, who was found guilty in the 2005 slaying of Greenwood County Sheriff Matt Samuels.

The high court will review the 2012 decision by the Kansas Supreme Court to overturn Cheever's capital murder conviction on grounds trial prosecutors violated Cheever's right under the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination.
