Trial moved for KCK teen involved in fatal wreck

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The parents of a girl killed in a car accident earlier this month will have to wait a bit longer to find out exactly what happened.

Their 14-year-old daughter Casey Knight was killed after the SUV she was riding in with four other teens ran off the road and flipped over.

The others fled the scene, leaving Knight alone in the car where she died.

A 14 year-old boy has been charged with stealing and driving the SUV. He was set for a trial on another car theft charge and was expected to be arraigned on the car theft charge for this case during the same meeting, however, lawyers decided to move the date back to December.

Most of Knight's family was there, including her parents and sisters, who had on shirts with Casey's picture on it.
Casey's parents said they're tired of waiting.

"I just want justice that's all I want you know justice cause it just wasn't right, she didn't deserve to die like that and then they left like she was and then they changed their stories, it's just ridiculous," Theresa Bishop, Knight's mother, said.

No one has been charged for Casey's death, which is even more frustrating for her parents.

"They all should take responsibility for leaving her there, said Michael Knight, Casey's father, "I think they all should pay for that, get justice for that," Casey's father Michael Knight said.

Casey's parents say they'll be back for the trial on December 5.
