Status Hearing Held For Murder Suspect Thomas Knapp of Merrill
January 20, 2021 3:34pm
A status hearing was held for a Merrill, Iowa man charged with first-degree murder in the death of his stepson.
82-year-old Thomas Knapp is charged with first-degree murder and willful injury in the May death of 51-year-old Kevin Juzek. Police say Knapp shot Juzek with a 20-gauge shotgun through a bedroom door, then deliberately shot him again in the chest.
Tuesday's hearing focused on transporting Knapp back and forth from the jail with COVID-19 protocols.
While the trial is scheduled for March 9 in Plymouth County, Judge Duane Hoffmeyer said it's unlikely it will take place on that date.
