A May trial has been scheduled for a 43-year-old man accused of trying to kill his ex-wife in Fort Dodge.

The Messenger of Fort Dodge says the attorney for Larry Crawford entered a not-guilty plea for him last week. Crawford is charged with attempted murder.

Police say officers found 39-year-old Jolene Crawford unconscious at her home on March 2. She's been taken to a Des Moines-area hospital for treatment of blunt force head trauma. The hospital has declined to provide any information on her.

Larry Crawford's trial is scheduled to begin May 14.
