MURDER TRIAL: Report On Hedlund’s Firing To Be Kept Out Of Court
A judge says an internal report detailing the firing of a former Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agent will not be used in an upcoming murder trial.
A judge ruled Friday that the report on Larry Hedlund has no information that defense lawyers could use to discredit him during the first-degree murder trial of Derrick McElroy.
McElroy is charged in the shooting death of 19-year-old Brandyn Preston in Fort Dodge in May of 2011. Hedlund oversaw an investigation that led to the arrest and is a witness in the case.
