A judge reset the trial for a 17-year-old charged with the murder of an Iowa City landlord.

Charles William Curtis Thompson was charged in the shooting death of John Versypt in October 2008. Versypt had come to Iowa City from his Cordova, Ill., home to check on one of the Broadway apartment complexes he owned. Thompson allegedly shot him in a robbery gone bad, investigators contend.

Thompson’s trial is now scheduled for Sept. 12, and the pretrial conference is set for Sept. 1.
