Attorneys for a woman who has been convicted of murdering her estranged husband in Leavenworth are still awaiting a trial transcript before filing post trial motions.

Attorneys for a woman who has been convicted of murdering her estranged husband in Leavenworth are still awaiting a trial transcript before filing post trial motions.

And the judge in the case said it could take some time to prepare the transcript.

Barbara M. Frantz appeared Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court for a status hearing.

Frantz, 52, was convicted in July of first-degree murder.

She was charged after her husband, Gary, was shot Jan. 27, 2017, in a parking lot in downtown Leavenworth.

Frantz has not yet been sentenced.

Attorneys for Frantz have been awaiting transcripts of the trial and other hearings in the case. The defense attorneys are seeking funding through the State Board of Indigents’ Defense Services to pay for the transcripts.

District Judge Michael Gibbens said Wednesday that the court reporter who worked on the case has not received anything from the state board.

Angela Keck, an attorney for Frantz, said the defense attorneys have had trouble getting the necessary paperwork to go through.

“We filed it several times,” Keck said. “It keeps getting rejected.”

But she said the document should now be filed.

Gibbens said he also has experienced problems with an electronic court filing system.

“Technology is great when it works,” he said.

Keck said the defense attorneys will need about 30 days to prepare post trial motions after they receive the transcripts.

Gibbens said preparation of the transcripts “will not go quickly.”

He scheduled another status hearing for Oct. 17.

Frantz remains in custody at the Leavenworth County Jail.
