Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston, who prosecuted several high-profile murder cases, has decided not to seek re-election.

Foulston is expected to announce her decision to her staff and colleagues Friday. She says she will enter private practice when her current term expires in January 2013.

She was first elected in 1988, and was re-elected five times.

Foulston was involved in some of Kansas' most noteworthy criminal trials including the 2005 prosecutor of Dennis Rader, the BTK serial killer, and the trial of Scott Roeder, who killed abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

Foulston, 60, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, but she said the disease is in remission and her health did not influence her decision.
