Voters in the Kansas county where Nola Foulston oversaw the prosecutions of some of the nation's most notorious crimes are choosing a new district attorney.

Foulston is stepping down after 24 years as the Sedgwick County district attorney with no Democrat running to replace her. That means whoever wins Tuesday's Republican primary essentially wins the job.

On the GOP ballot are deputy district attorney Marc Bennett and former assistant D.A. Kevin O'Connor, who's now a special prosecutor for the Kansas attorney general.

Sedgwick County is home to Wichita, terrorized for years by "BTK" serial killer Dennis Rader. Foulston also led the prosecution of Scott Roeder for killing abortion provider George Tiller. It was also in Wichita that brothers Reginald and Jonathan Carr went on a rampage that killed five people.
