Judge Orders New Trial in Sioux County Murder Case
June 18, 2021 10:53am
A judge has ordered a new trial for 71-year-old Gregg Winterfeld of Spirit Lake, who was convicted in a May 2020 shooting death in rural Sioux County.
District Judge Jeffrey Neary ruled Wednesday that Winterfeld should get a new trial because he and his lawyer did not get enough peremptory challenges during jury selection in his first trial.
Winterfeld was convicted in the death of Grant Wilson. He was charged with first-degree murder but was convicted of second-degree murder.
Both sides were given six peremptory strikes of potential jurors rather than the 10 required in trials involving Class A felonies such as first-degree murder.
