The prosecution has filed a motion against Justin Marshall’s request to delay his trial, according to online court documents.

Marshall is accused of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Broadway apartments landlord John Versypt.

Marshall originally was a material witness in Charles William Curtis Thompson’s trial.

After being held for months as a witness, an order for his release was affirmed by the Iowa Supreme Court. Marshall was later arrested in Texas before being extradited to Johnson County to face charges for Versypt’s death.

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