A northern Iowa man has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder for the death of a Minnesota woman.
21-year-old Tailer Handsaker filed the written plea Friday in Dickinson County District Court. A trial date has not been set.
Handsaker is accused of killing 36-year-old Sarah Grimmius, of Jackson, Minnesota, on December 5 at his home.
Police found Grimmius' body while responding to a Dec. 7 call about a woman who was unresponsive. Authorities have not said how Grimmius was killed or how she and Handsaker knew each other.
If convicted of first-degree murder, Handsaker would face a mandatory life prison sentence.
