Thompson sentencing postponed until October
Sentencing for an Iowa City man connected to the slaying of an Iowa City landlord has been postponed until 10 a.m. Oct. 19.
Charles William Curtis Thompson, 19, had initially been charged with first-degree murder after the shooting death of Broadway apartment landlord John Versypt, 64, in October 2009.
Thompson pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of accessory after the fact, and he is scheduled to testify against defendant Justin Marshall. Marshall's trial was postponed from May 22 to Sept. 18.
