MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — A central Iowa man is accused of slashing a truck with a samurai sword during a fight with his ex-fiancee.
The Marshalltown Police Department says 36-year-old William Thompson tried to break into the woman's home Sunday after he saw her and a male acquaintance changing the locks to the home.
