  A federal grand jury has indicted two Texas brothers in connection with illegal deer hunts in Kansas.
    The Justice Department announced Tuesday that the federal grand jury in Wichita returned a 23-count indictment against 41-year-old James Bobby Butler Jr. and his brother, 35-year-old Martin Jackson Butler. The men are from Martinsville, Texas.
    Both men face several charges of conspiracy and wildlife trafficking stemming from illegal sales of guided deer hunts in southwest Kansas.
    The men are accused of operating a guide service in Comanche County, Kan., and selling their services to out-of-state hunters from 2005 to 2008. The indictment alleges that their customers killed more deer than allowed, hunted without permits and killed deer using illegal equipment.
