Western Iowa Murder Trial Delayed
By Associated Press
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) A trial has been delayed for a western Iowa man accused of shooting to death a 64-year-old woman.
The Daily Nonpareil says the trial of Robert Reynolds Jr. was delayed until Sept. 30. Reynolds has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in the slaying of Patricia Kinkade-Dorsey, of rural Cass County, on April 9.
Officers sent to Reynolds’ home in Oakland say they found that Kinkade-Dorsey had been killed. Three other people in the home were not injured. A criminal complaint says Reynolds acknowledged shooting Kinkade-Dorsey after an argument.
Reynolds’ trial had been scheduled to begin earlier this month.
