Kehoe trial set for Oct. 28

Michelle Kehoe will go on trial Oct. 28, a judge decided Tuesday.

Kehoe, 36, is accused of first-degree murder for the death of her son, 2-year-old Seth Kehoe. In addition, she faces charges of attempt to commit murder and child endangerment.

At the roughly 15-minute hearing in the Buchanan County Courthouse, Kehoe’s attorney asked 1st District Judge Thomas Bower to change part of the no-contact order barring Michelle Kehoe from contacting Sean Kehoe and immediate family or anyone living with the child.

Bower said he would likely decide next week whether Michelle Kehoe’s husband, Eugene Kehoe, will be allowed to visit her in prison.

Eugene Kehoe reported his wife and sons missing in October 2008, after the trio did not return to their Coralville home. Buchanan County investigators eventually found the family minivan by the Hook ’N’ Liner Pond. They discovered Seth Kehoe’s body nearby.

Sean Kehoe told police his mother cut his neck before allegedly killing his brother.

The prosecution secured a no-contact order last week, saying Michelle Kehoe is a potential threat to her son. At Tuesday’s hearing, the state also said the defense’s request to change the court order violates a provision of the Iowa Code.

Bower set dates for the pretrial conference, discovery period, and day for filing motions.
