Mason City murder trial rescheduled to January
A January trial has been scheduled for a man accused of a fatal stabbing in Mason City.
The Mason City Globe Gazette says the trial has been set to begin on Jan. 14 for 23-year-old James Farnsworth II. He's charged with first-degree murder in the April 14 slaying of 23-year-old Ian Decker.
Farnsworth's trial had been scheduled to begin July 17. He's filed notice that he will claim self-defense at trial.
Farnsworth is free on bond.
