A man wanted in two area counties for failing to appear at criminal court hearings has been captured.

Lyon County Crime Stoppers says Cody Risner was recently taken into custody, although it does not specify how Risner was caught.

Risner was supposed to go to trial in Lyon County in February on an aggravated battery charge related to an alleged stabbing incident at an east Emporia apartment complex last October, but he failed to appear at his final pretrial hearing and missed at least two trial settings. Risner then allegedly failed to appear at a Coffey County hearing in March on charges of domestic battery and criminal threat.

Word on new court dates is pending. Because of coronavirus precautions, no trials can start until at least June 1 in Lyon County.
