CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - The second trial in the slaying of a Cedar Rapids cab driver has been scheduled for October.
The Gazette reports that the trial of 35-year-old Johnathan Mitchell, of Cedar Rapids, is scheduled to begin Oct. 8 in Story County District Court. The trial has been moved there because of pretrial publicity in Linn County.
Mitchell is charged with first-degree murder and robbery, accused of stabbing to death 54-year-old Cathy Stickley during a robbery on April 29, 2011.
Mitchell's first trial started last August but ended in mistrial during jury selection because the prosecutor had a serious medical condition and couldn't continue the trial.
