The trial has begun in 30th District Court for the second defendant in the April 2017 robbery and beating of the Wichita County Judge’s Administrative Assistant.

Kathrine Sanders is charged with burglary with intent to commit another felony.

The other defendant, Cocshi Robinson already pleaded to lesser charges of robbery and burglary and is serving 40 years on each charge, to be served concurrently.

The two were arrested after the home of then 83-year-old Willie Wall was broken into. 

Wall said he had gone home for lunch and chased intruders out of his home on Polk Avenue, and then was assaulted by one of them from behind with a brick and was unconscious about 40 minutes. He reported cash missing after he recovered.  

Police got descriptions of suspects and a vehicle from a neighbor and also obtained fingerprints which they said matched Robinson.
