Trial delayed for man accused of killing grandmother

ONAWA (AP) — A trial has been delayed for a man accused of killing his grandmother in western Iowa.

Monona County District Court records say a judge Wednesday set Sept. 10 as the new trial starting date for 21-year-old Eliot Stowe. The trial had been scheduled to begin this coming Tuesday.

Stowe has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

He’s accused of fatally beating 66-year-old Cheryl Stowe at the home they shared in rural Castana. Her body was found June 27 about a mile and a half from the home.
