The man accused of killing a Marshalltown woman over the weekend says he didn’t really mean to kill her.
The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports that’s what 40-year-old Matthew Irving said during a video conference with a judge Wednesday.
Irving is charged with first degree murder in the death of 55-year-old Rebecca Hall. Hall’s body was found in a minivan parked just east of Marshalltown early Sunday morning by a Marshall County sheriff’s deputy.
Autopsy results for Hall are still pending.
Deputies, along with DCI agents, arrested Irving late Tuesday night.
He is in the Marshall County Jail on a bond of $1 million.
