Mark Becker's Eluding Trial Postponed

Meet The Team

    April 26, 2014 | 8:39 pm
    BUTLER COUNTY - The man accused of killing Aplington-Parkersburg football coach Ed Thomas will not go to trial for eluding police until next year.

    A judge postponed Mark Becker's trial from December 8th until January 12th in Butler County.

    Police accuse Becker of leading police on a chase the weekend before he allegedly shot Thomas back in June.

    After his arrest, Becker was admitted to a Waterloo hospital for evaluation, but was released.

    Police say he shot Thomas the day after his release.

    Becker is charged with first-degree murder. A trial date in that case hasn't been set.
