TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka woman charged with helping her husband avoid arrest in the 2009 murder of a Kansas woman is asking to have the complaint dismissed.

Rebecca Hollister's attorneys have filed a motion in Nemaha County seeking dismissal of a complaint that alleges she helped her husband, Roger Hollister, avoid arrest after the murder of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton.

Roger Hollister died March 20 while serving a life prison term for Kimmi's death.

Rebecca Hollister's attorneys say in a motion filed Friday that she was given immunity before she testified against her husband. The attorneys contend she can't be charged based on statements she made under immunity.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/14I5Bix ) Hollister's preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 22 in Nemaha County.
