Iowa City landlord murder suspect requests trial delay


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A man accused of killing an Iowa City landlord in October 2009 has again asked a judge to delay his trial, according to online court documents.

Justin Marshall, 21, was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the slaying of John Versypt, a Broadway apartments landlord.

Charles William Curtis Thompson was originally charged with murder in connection to the case, but his trial was declared a mistrial in September 2011 after the prosecution played part of a videotaped interview that officials agreed would not be shown to the jury.

In December 2011, Thompson signed documents stating he knew Marshall killed Versypt.

Thompson also pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact.

A hearing for Marshall’s motion to delay his trial is scheduled for 11 a.m. Aug. 27.
