A trial date has been set for an Akron, Iowa man accused of first degree murder in the death of his mother.
Judge Steven Andreasen has set trial for 45 year old Jonathan Neunaber to take place May 10th in Plymouth County District Court.
Last month Judge Andreasen ruled that Neunaber was mentally competent to stand trial.
Neunaber is charged with the July, 2014 beating death of his mother, 80 year old Esther Neunaber at her rural Akron home.
Jonathan Neunaber has pleaded not guilty in that case.
He remains in custody in the Plymouth County Jail.
