CHEROKEE, IA (AP) - A northwest Iowa man has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges in connection with an attack last month.
The Sioux City Journal reports 34-year-old Joseph Kosiba entered his written plea Monday in Cherokee County District Court.
Kosiba is charged with two counts of attempted murder and other charges including first-degree burglary and willful injury resulting in bodily injury.
Court documents say Kosiba had a claw hammer when he kicked in a woman's door on Nov. 12. Kosiba is accused of chasing the woman through her home, before she locked herself and her child inside a bathroom. Police say Kosiba hit a man with the hammer after he was confronted inside the home.
The newspaper reports a trial date has not been set.
