Marin to Undergo Psych Evaluation


By Becky Ogann

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) - A judge has ruled that a state psychologist may evaluate Kyle Marin, who is charged with the slayings of two women last year.

Marin, a 20-year-old from North Liberty, is charged with the slayings of cousins Molly Edmondson and Katrina Hill last spring in Cedar Rapids.

An autopsy showed that the 18-year-old victims died of multiple stab wounds. Their bodies were found in an apartment near Kirkwood Community College by Hill's father.

Trial is tentatively scheduled for June 11, but District Judge Robert Sosalla says that can't be confirmed until Marin is evaluated by a state psychologist.

Marin was in court Wednesday for a hearing on his request for a change of venue, which the judge said he would take under advisement.
