Court records say a man accused of killing his grandmother in western Iowa will use an insanity defense.
Monona County District Court records say 21-year-old Eliot 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.
On Thursday Eliot Stowe’s attorney filed notice of the defense, as required by Iowa law. The court records say his trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 12.
